Old Town Canoe info

The Old Town canoe with serial number 107904 is a 16 foot, CS grade, HW (Heavy Water) model with Western red cedar planking, open spruce gunwales, oak decks, oak trim, a keel, and a sponsons. It was built between October, 1930 and March, 1931. The original exterior paint color was dark green. It shipped on April 1st, 1931 to Chicago, Illinois. A scan of this build record can be found by following the link at the thumbnail image attached below.

These scans were created with substantial grants from the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association (WCHA) and others. 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 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 doesn't match your canoe. Feel free to reply here if you have any other questions.
