Old Town 118058

Hello--

Old Town 118058 is an 18 foot CS (common sense or middle) grade HW (heavy water) model canoe that was finished June-December 1936. It has red Western cedar planking, open spruce gunwales, ash decks, ash thwarts, ash seat frames, a keel and an original color of dark green. The canoe was shipped to Birmingham, Michigan, October 13, 1937. A copy of the scan of this record is attached below-- click on it to get a bigger 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
