    Congratulations, the Old Town with serial number 112060 is a 16 foot long double end boat model in CS (Common Sense or the middle) grade with red Western cedar planking, open spruce gunwales, oak decks, spruce thwarts, a keel, outside stems, and a floor rack. It was built between January, 1933 and May, 1934. The original exterior paint color was dark green. It shipped on May 28th, 1934 to Kerhonkson, New York. A scan showing this build record can be found by following the link at the attached thumbnail image below.


    This scan and several hundred thousand more were created with substantial grants from the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association (WCHA) and others as you probably know well. A description of the project to preserve these records is available at if you want more details. I hope that you will donate, join or renew your membership to 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 boat. A listing in the classifieds at is usually the best way to find a good new home for a boat like this. Feel free to reply here if you have any other questions.
