Hello Tom,

The canoe with serial # 131479 was a 18' Guide canoe in GS (Guides Special) grade. It had open spruce gunwales, ash seats, decks and thwarts and a keel. It was painted Guides Special Green. It was shipped in April, 1941 to Detroit, MI.

Scans of approximately 210,000 records were created with substantial grants from the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association (WCHA) and others. Additional information about the project to preserve these records is available at if you want more details. Please join WCHA or make a tax deductable contribution so that services like this can continue. See to learn more about the WCHA and to join. If you are already a WCHA member, THANK YOU!

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.
