Request for build record please OT


New Member
Can you provide me with a build record for an Old Town canoe: 156902 16
Thank you,
Fairbanks, AK
The Old Town canoe with serial number 156902 is a 16 foot long, CS grade, Yankee model with red Western cedar planking, open spruce gunwales, and a keel. It was built between December, 1951 and June, 1952. The original exterior paint color was dark green. It shipped on July 3rd, 1952 to Bear Mountain Park, New York. A scan of this build record can be found by following the link at the attached thumbnail image below.

This scan was 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 if you want more details. I hope that you will join or contribute 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.
