Hi Benson, Looking for the build info on this canoe, # 164438 16. Thank you Chris W.
The Old Town canoe with serial number 164438 is a 16 foot long, CS (Common Sense or middle) grade, Guide's model with 16 inch decks, a keel, and sponsons. It was built between December, 1955 and October, 1956 and shipped on April 15th, 1957 to Ellsworth, Maine. A scan showing this build record can be found 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 http://www.wcha.org/catalogs/old-town/records/ 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 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.
