Red Canvas Canoe #130-447 16

The Old Town canoe with serial number 130447 is a 16 foot long, CS (Common Sense or middle) grade, Otca model with open spruce gunwales,half ribs, a keel, and outside stems. It was built between July, 1940 and April, 1941. The original exterior paint color was dark red and it was shipped on Marcy 14th, 1966 to Cranford, New Jersey. A scan of this build record can be found by following the link at the attached thumbnail image below.

This scan and several hundred thousand others were created with substantial grants from the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association (WCHA) and others as you probably know well. A description of the project to preserve these records is available at if you want more details. I hope that you will join or renew your membership to the WCHA so that services like this can continue. See to learn more about the WCHA and to join.

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.
