Serial number for OT


OT serial # 80851 is one of those scans which is occasionally hard to locate, as it is filed a bit out of proper sequential order. However, I managed to find it. 80851 is a 17' Otca of CS grade with western red cedar planking, open spruce gunwales, 20" birch decks, and birch seat frames and thwarts. It was painted Dark Green and shipped on 30 June 1924 to W. Harwich, Cape Cod, MA.

The scan of this record is attached below-- click on it to get a larger image. 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 and anyone else reading this will join or renew membership in the WCHA so that services like this can continue. See to learn more about the WCHA and to renew.

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.
