Ot 7442

The Old Town canoe with serial number 7442 is a 17 foot long, AA grade, Charles River model with Western red cedar planking, a keel, outside stems, long mahogany decks, mahogany trim, mahogany double gunwales, and two flag pole sockets. It was built between October, 1907 and April, 1908. The original exterior paint color was dark green. It shipped on April 27th, 1908 to Miamisburg, Ohio. A scan of this build record can be found by following the link behind the attached thumbnail image below.

This scan was created with substantial grants from the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association (WCHA) and others as you probably know well. 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. I hope that you will join or contribute to 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.html to join.

It is also possible that you could have another number or manufacturer if this description don't match your canoe. Feel free to reply here if you have any other questions.
