need info on carleton please

Greetings Dan,

Carleton 13526 is a 16 foot CS (common sense, or middle) grade canoe with red Western cedar planking, open spruce gunwales, and birch decks/thwarts/seat frames. It was fitted with a keel and painted dark green with a 1/2" gold stripe and the name "Why Not" on the right and left bow. It was shipped April 1, 1919 to Rochester Sporting Goods in Rochester, NY. Image of the scan of this record is attached below-- click on it to get a larger image.

This scan and several hundred thousand others were created with substantial grants from the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association (WCHA) and others. A description of the project to preserve these records is available at if you want more details. I hope that you will join or renew your membership to the WCHA so that services like this can continue. See to learn more about the WCHA and to join.
