The Old Town canoe with serial number 149960 is a 16 foot long, AA (or top) grade, HW (Heavy Water) model with open mahogany gunwales, a keel, and sponsons. It was built between December, 1947 and March, 1948. The original exterior paint was dark green. It shipped on March 31st, 1948 to Detroit, Michigan. 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. 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.
