Hello Arbutus,

Old Town 131546 is a 17 foot AA (top) grade HW (heavy water) model canoe that was completed Janurary-May of 1941. It has open mahogany gunwales, mahogany decks, mahogany thwarts, mahogany seat frames, a keel, a floor rack, sponsons and was originally dark red. It was shipped to Whitehall, MI, on June 3, 1941. There was an inquiry regarding this canoe on 1-15-75 from Whitehall, MI. A copy of the front and back of this record is attached below-- click to get a larger image.

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.
