Old Town #137599 - 17

Linda, Dan: The Old Town canoe with serial number 137599 is a 17 foot long, AA grade, HW model with a keel and a floor rack. It was built between May and August 1943. The original exterior paint color was dark green. It shipped on August 30, 1943 to an eventual destination of Harrison, Maine. A scan of this build record can be found by following the link at the attached thumbnail images below.

These scans 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.
