    Could we have the build record for this Trapper, please?

    Thanks!

    The Old Town canoe with serial number 182615 is a 15 foot long lightweight model with a keel. It was built in February, 1969. The original exterior paint color was dark green. It shipped on April, 1st, 1969 to Shrewsbury, Massachusetts. 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 renew.

    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.
