Old Town 134252 is an 18 foot CS (common sense, or middle) grade HW model canoe that was completed between December 9, 1941 and May 1942 (note that date--- Pearl Harbor was bombed December 7). The canoe has open spruce gunwales, ash decks, thwarts, and seat frames, a keel, sponsons, and a floor rack. It was painted dark green and also fitted with swiveling row locks--- I don't know what the "PB" notation on the record means. The canoe was shipped to Lollar Implement Company in Melborne, Iowa, on May 19, 1942.

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.
