Ot 1107176 13

The Old Town canoe with that number was probably built about ten years ago based on the information at http://www.wcha.org/catalogs/old-town/models.html or you have an extra digit or two in that serial number. A modern canoe will usually have a hull identification number that may be the only way to date it since they aren't keeping paper records any more. Please send a picture of the digits from each end if they aren't clear. Thanks,

The Old Town canoe with serial number 110176 is a 13 foot long, AA (or top) grade, fifty pound model with red western cedar planking, open mahogany gunwales, mahogany decks, mahogany thwarts, a keel, and a floor rack. It was built between September 1931 and July, 1934. The original exterior paint color was dark green. It shipped on July 6th, 1934 to San Diego, California. A scan of this build record can be found by following the link at the attached thumbnail image below.

This scan 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/about-the-wcha/ to learn more about the WCHA and http://store.wcha.org/WCHA-New-Membership.html 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.
