Old Town/ 15'

You may want to check the digits in each end again if you have a 15 foot long canoe. The Old Town build record for number 172539 shows a 16 foot long lapstrake boat that shipped in 1963 as shown below.

This scan and several hundred thousand others were created with substantial grants from the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association (WCHA) and others as you probably know well. 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/about-the-wcha/ to learn more about the WCHA and http://store.wcha.org/WCHA-New-Membership.html to join.
