old town sea boat


New Member
I have recently finished renovation of a 16 foot old town sea boat with a serial number 155929-16. I would like to find out the year it was built.


Old Town number 155929 appears on a 16' Sea model in AA grade with a keel. It also has outside stems and a floor rack. It was painted White and Green and shipped to Mauch Chunk, Pennsylvania on Sept. 28, 1951. Reference is made that the boat was returned on November 22, 1951 having been damaged. 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. 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. - Al
