Old Town 50lb. # 127069

The Old Town canoe with serial number 127069 is a 15 foot long, CS grade, 50# model with open spruce gunwales, a keel, and a floor rack. It was built between March, 1939 and February, 1940. The original exterior paint color was red. It shipped on March 11th, 1940 to Chicago, Illinois and returned for refinishing on September 23, 1940. A scan of this build record can be found by following the link at 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. A description of 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 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.html to join.

It is 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.
