Wooden Canoes are in the Blood
In Memoriam
Could I have the build record for this one? It is my 18 ft Guide. I have lost my hardcopy and the last time I requested it was 2 hard drives ago at least.


here ya go...

Hi Fitz--

Old Town 129262 is an 18 foot CS grade guide model canoe with open spruce gunwales and a keel. It was originally painted dark green and shipped to Salem Depot, NH, on June 22, 1940. 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.
