White cap serial number


Curious about Wooden Canoes
Could you please provide me with information regarding the White cap Day Sailor serial number 141948? Thank you.
The Old Town with serial number 141948 is a 13 1/2 foot long, CS grade, lapstrake sailboat with a keel, outside stems, and a floor rack. It was built in April, 1945. The original paint colors were white, gray, and blue. It shipped on April 17th, 1945 to Sterling, Ill.

A scan of this build record can be found by following the link behind 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 this information 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.
