The Old Town with serial number 35175 is a 16 foot long, AA grade, double ended boat with Western red cedar planking, open mahogany gunwales, mahogany decks, mahogany trim, a keel, outside stems, a floor rack, and painter rings. It was built between November(?), 1914 and July, 1916. The original exterior paint color was dark green. It shipped on July 8th, 1916 to Ashland, New Hampshire. A scanned copy of this build record can be found by following the link behind the attached thumbnail image below.

This scan was created with substantial grants from the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association (WCHA) and others as you probably know well. Additional information about the project to preserve these records is available at http://www.wcha.org/catalogs/old-town/records/ if you want more details. I hope that you will join or contribute 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.html to join.

It is also possible that you could have another number or manufacturer if this description don't match your boat. Feel free to reply here if you have any other questions.

Oops

OOPS.......Wrong number. This is an Otca CS w/birch decks. I'll look closer tonight and report the correct serial number.
