Enthusiastic about Wooden Canoes
I'm looking for information on an canoe I plan to restore.Serial number 139451-16 Thanks, Dennis
The Old Town Canoe with number 139451 is a 16' Otca in CS (Common Sense) grade with open sprice gunwales, ash seats, decks and thwarts and a keel. It was originally painted dark green and shipped to Camp Arrowhead in Apalachin, NY in June of 1944. A copy of the 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. Please join WCHA or make a tax deductable contribution so that services like this can continue. See http://www.wcha.org/wcha/ to learn more about the WCHA, http://www.wcha.org/wcha_video.php to watch a 10 minute video about WCHA and our programs and http://www.wcha.org/join.html to join. If you are already a WCHA member, THANK YOU!

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.
