Curious about Wooden Canoes
howdy , john here , from york pa. , can anyone send me a build record for an Old Town #88786 .......thanks
John: The Old Town canoe with serial number 88786 is a 17 foot long, CS grade HW model with outside stems, sponsons and a keel. It was built between November, 1925 and January, 1926. The original exterior canvas covering was dark green. It shipped on March 1, 1926 to Philadelphia, PA. A scan of this build record can be found by following the link behind 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 http://www.wcha.org/ot_records/ 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 http://www.wcha.org/wcha/ to learn more about the WCHA and http://www.wcha.org/join.php 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.
