Old Town canoe

Hello Don,

Old Town 149682 is a 16 foot CS (common sense or middle) grade HW (heavy water) model canoe that was completed September 1947-January 1948. It has red Western cedar planking, open spruce gunwales, a keel, sponsons and was originally dark green. It was shipped to Columbus, Ohio, on February 19, 1948. Are the sponsons still there?

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.
