The Kennebec canoe with serial number 22407 is shown on pages 90 and 91 of volume four in the Kennebec ledgers. This was assigned to 12 foot long Kennebec Junior model type A. The O.S.S. column is marked OK followed by 5/20/31 so it probably had outside stems added on May 20th, 1931. It was planked by Morgan on December 20th, 1930. The canvas covering and first filler coat was applied by Leonard on the same day. The second filler coat was applied by Leonard on January 17th, 1931. It was railed by Toulouse (?) on January 31st, 1931. The "F 22" (Function number 22 or the keel?) was also completed by Giroux(?) on January 31st, 1931. The "F 23", "F 24", and "F 28" (Functions number 23, 24, and 28 which may be the braces/thwarts, seats, and painting?) were completed by Leonard(?) on March 21st, 1931. The original paint color was red. It was also packed by Lautigue on March 21st, 1931. The shipping date was June 30th, 1931 to location "31-512". This location is probably an order number but we don't currently have enough information to identify it. The original Kennebec records are stored at the Maine State Museum. I am unable to attach a scan of these records since their policies do not permit any electronic reproduction of their materials.
The microfilms of these records were created with substantial grants from the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association (WCHA). I hope that you will join or contribute to the WCHA so that services like this can continue. See http://www.wcha.org/wcha/

The Junior model was first introduced in 1922 and should make a fine solo canoe. More information about the Kennebec Junior and other models can be found in the Kennebec catalogs contained on the Historic Wood Canoe and Boat Company Catalog Collection CD available from http://www.dragonflycanoe.com/cdrom.htm
and in the WCHA store.
It is also possible that you could have another number or manufacturer if this description doesn't match your canoe. Feel free to reply here if you have any other questions.
