My Dad just bought this canoe a few days ago. I'd like to try and get some info on it and give him that info for Father's Day. Any help you could give would be very much appreciated. I've seen some of those computer scans detailing the history of it...if you have that I would really love to get my hands on it. Thanks so much in advance, Kevin 913-515-9098

Your dad's canoe is a 16' CS grade (middle grade) Yankee Model with open spruce gunwales, ash decks, thwarts and seats. It has half ribs, outside stems and a keel, and was originally painted dark red. It was built in 1943 and sold to Ulhigh Canoe Livery in Cranford, NJ.

The scan of this record is attached below-- click on it 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 and anyone else reading this will join or renew membership in 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 renew.

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. Providing photographs would help with identification, as would an accurate measurement of the boat's
