Ot 141308 18

Hi Emerson - Good to meet you at the auction on Saturday.

141308 was issued to an 18' Guide model with open spruce gunwales, Ash seats, decks & thwarts and a keel. It was painted Dark Green with a Guides Special green on the bottom (GS Green was lighter). It was shipped to Portland ME on March 5, 1945. 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 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.

Wrong Build Record received

Thanks Mike, but the recond you send is for canoe #141317. Can you send the BR for #141308.

You tricked me. The description you wrote matched the canoe and it took me a year to see that the build record did not.
