old town canoe

Hello American Picker--

Old Town 165399 is a 16 foot AA (top) grade Guide model canoe that was completed July-September 1956. It has a keel and was painted dark green, then shipped to Watkins Glen, NY, on June 14 (flag day), 1957. A copy of the scan of this record is attached below-- click on it to get a giant-sized replica.

This scan and several hundred thousand others 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/ot_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.php 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.
