old town 16' s/n 158962

Hi, Rod--

Old Town 158962 is a 16 foot CS grade ("Common Sense") square stern model canoe built between December of 1952 and June of 1954. Although the canvas was filled in '52, the boat sat until June of '54 before it was finished. It has 48" decks, a keel, outside stems, and a floor rack and was painted dark green... then sent to Tibby's Sport Center in Lewiston, Maine on June 26, 1954.

I'll attach the scan of this record below. If you'd like a larger copy, feel free to email me directly. 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.
