old town sn 157726


Curious about Wooden Canoes
looking for info on this 17 foot octa? thanks in advance for your help... a.d.

Old Town canoe 157726 is a 17 foot Otca of CS (common sense i.e. not fancy) grade, built with a keel and supplied with a floor rack-- painted bright red before being shipped to Nash Marine Supplies in Washington, DC.

Does this seem to be your boat? I'll attach the page from the 1952 catalog, as found on the Catalog Collection CD, as well as the appropriate scan.

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, http://www.wcha.org/wcha_video.php to watch a 10 minute video about WCHA and our programs and http://www.wcha.org/join.html to join. If you are already a WCHA member, THANK YOU!

Happy Paddling--
