Could someone please post the build record for Old Town #137176? This should be a mid-40s-era 17' CS-grade HW with sponsons. Thanks!

You're right, Michael!

Old Town 137176 is a 17 foot CS grade HW with open spruce gunwales and ash decks/thwarts/seats, which was fitted with a keel, floor rack and sponsons and painted dark green before shipment to Jenkins Marine Motor Sales of Baltimore, MD on August 19, 1943.

Scan of the build record is attached below. Scans of approximately 210,000 records were created with substantial grants from the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association (WCHA) and others. Additional information about the project to preserve these records is available at http://www.wcha.org/ot_records/ if you want more details.

I know you're a WCHA member, but others reading this who aren't members are encouraged to join WCHA or make a tax deductible contribution so that services like this can continue.

Reverse Side...

Forgot to attach the scan of the reverse side notation, a contact in 1991.

Thanks Kathy. Would it be possible to post or email a higher resolution image, something like that attached here?

doesn't work

Unless I reduce the size of the image and make it a gif file, I can't get it to work. I'll try to do it using Denis' computer.
This is fine Kathy. Don't worry- I thought it might be easy to post with higher resolution. The record you posted is completely legible. Thanks!
