ot 132288 16

Old Town 132288 is a 16 foot CS (common sense) Yankee model canoe, finished between April and July of 1941. It has open spruce gunwales and ash decks, thwarts, and seat frames. It was fitted with a keel and a floor rack and was originally bright red. Was shipped shortly after a memorable day in history, on December 12, 1941, to Newark, New Jersey.

Thanks for the quick response Kathy. I am assuming that the interior was varnished and that the exterior was the bright red. Would you agree? The reason I ask is that the interior has been painted bright red also and I don't think it would of been shipped that way.
