It's a 17 footer in need of some TLC. I'm sure I'll post more about her soon.
Welcome, the Old Town canoe with serial number 41702 is a 17 foot long, AA (or top) grade, Charles River model with red Western cedar planking, closed mahogany gunwales, mahogany decks, mahogany thwarts, mahogany seats, a keel, and a floor rack. It was built between February and June, 1916. The original exterior paint color was dark green. It shipped on June 10th, 1916 to Holyoke, Mass. 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 more 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/catalogs/old-town/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/about-wcha to learn more about the WCHA and http://www.wcha.org/store/membership to join.
It is also possible that you could have another number or manufacturer if this description doesn't match the canoe. Feel free to reply here if you have any other questions.
Thank you so much. That's the canoe!!!!
