Old Town Double End Boat 64985 16

Treewater

Wooden Canoes are in the Blood
Sorry, I posted this in the wrong forum. I need the build record on an Old Town double end boat 64985 16. The "8" is not certain. Could be 6, 9, 3.
Thanks. Tim

Hi Tim-- So far, I haven't found your boat.

64995 is a 16' CS grade Yankee
64935 is a 16' CS grade Yankee
64965 is an 18' CS grade Charles River

Will keep looking!

looks like it may be the one!

Old Town 64905 is a 16 foot CS (common sense or middle) grade double ended boat that was completed January-April of 1921. It has red Western cedar planking, open spruce gunwales, maple decks, thwarts, and seat frames, a keel, outside stems, and a floor rack. Original color was dark green. It was shipped to Sabael, New York, on June 15, 1921. An inquiry was made regarding this boat on 11-18-1975 from Rensselaer, New York (this is on the reverse of the card).

It is also possible that you could have another number or manufacturer if this description don't match your canoe. Feel free to reply here if you have any other questions.
