Please send info regarding Old Town #137753 which appears to be an 16' Yankee.

Thanking you in advance, I remain

Most Cordially-

The Old Town canoe with serial number 137753 is a 16 foot long, CS (common sense or middle) grade, Yankee model with open spruce gunwales, ash decks, ash trim, and a keel. It was built between June and August, 1943. The original exterior paint color was dark green. It shipped on August 12th, 1943 to Davenport, Iowa. A scan showing this build record can be found by following the link at the attached thumbnail image below.

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.
