Old Town 95238 18

The Old Town canoe with serial number 95238 is an 18 foot long, AA grade, Ideal model with Western red cedar planking, open mahogany gunwales, mahogany decks, mahogany trim, half ribs, and a keel. It was built between August, 1927 and May, 1928. The original exterior paint color was similar to the image at http://www.wcha.org/catalogs/old-town/designs/design22.gif known as design number 22. It shipped on May 8th, 1928 to Little Rock, Arkansas. A scan 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. 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.
