OLC Yankee Serial # 135109

Hello--

Old Town 135109 is a 16 foot CS (common sense or middle) grade Yankee model canoe that was completed March-July of 1942. It has open spruce gunwales, ash decks, ash thwarts and ash seat frames, a keel and was originally dark green. It was shipped to Lakeside, Inc., in Macon, Georgia on July 20, 1942. 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 http://www.wcha.org/ot_records/ 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 http://www.wcha.org/wcha/ to learn more about the WCHA and http://www.wcha.org/join.php to join.

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.

Kathy
