108696 was issued to an 17' AA Grade HW model with open spruce gunwales, Mahogany seats, decks & thwarts and outside rails. It had a keel, outside stems, a floor rack and sponsons. It was painted Maroon with a 1/2" white stripe. It was shipped to Newcomb NJ on April 1, 1931 and returned to Old Town for problems with paint in 1931 and again in 1933. 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.
