Could I please see the build record for this canoe, 119554 16. My Grandfather found this canoe in Pensilvania after a major Delaware flood 1940's-50's. The canoe now resides with me in Nova Scotia.
Thanks, Ezra

Ezra,

The canoe you mention was shipped on March 5, 1937 to Abercrombe & Fitch in New York. It was built as a 16' model HW in a CS grade with spruce gunwales and oak decks, seats and thwarts. It was ordered with a keel and sponsons and the original color was "bright green".

If not already a member, please consider joining the WCHA. This service was brought about by significant grants and volunteer time. This forum is also a valuable source for restoring or repairing this fine old canoe.

A build record is attached.

Ric
