Request for 16' OT Serial #154354

The Old Town canoe with serial number 154354 is a 16 foot, CS grade, HW (Heavy Water) model with Western red cedar planking, open spruce gunwales, and a keel. It was built between May and June, 1950. The original exterior paint color was dark green enamel. It shipped on March 15th, 1951 to Woodbury, New Jersey. A scan of this build record can be found by following the link at the thumbnail image attached below.

These scans 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/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 doesn't match your canoe. Feel free to reply here if you have any other questions. Good luck with the auction at http://cgi.ebay.com/_W0QQitemZ7230673542 on eBay.
