Old Town Rowboat # 130796 7

What is the length of your boat? If it is 9', we have a match and the last digit of your number should be a 9, not a 7.

130796 was assigned to a 9' dingy in AA grade with mahogany trim, a keel and outside stems. From your picture, looks like things match. It was originally painted white and shipped to Bay Head, NJ in June of 1941. A copy of the build record is attached.

Scans of approximately 210,000 records were 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. Please join WCHA or make a tax deductable contribution 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. A 10 minute video on WCHA is viewable at http://www.wcha.org/wcha_video.php. If you are already a WCHA member, THANK YOU!

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.

By the way - nice job with the restoration!
