OldTown #106290-17

The Old Town canoe with serial number 106290 is a 17 foot long, AA (or top) grade, Otca model with red western cedar planking, open mahogany gunwales, a keel, and a floor rack. It was built between May and July, 1930. The original exterior paint color was blue. It was shipped on July 10th, 1930 to Newbury, New Hampshire. It appears to have moved to Douglas, Mass by May of 1971 when there was a previous request for a copy of this build record as shown on the back side. Scan showing both sides of this build record can be found by following the links at the attached thumbnail images below.

These scans and several hundred thousand others were created with substantial grants from the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association (WCHA) and others as you probably know well. 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 they could have another number or manufacturer if this description don't match the canoe. Feel free to reply here if you have any other questions.
