    The Old Town dinghy with serial number 16086 is a seven foot, five inch long, AA (or top) grade, sailing dinghy with half ribs, a keel, and outside stems. It was built between June and July, 1958. The original exterior paint color was white. It shipped on March 10th, 1959 to Washington, D.C. A scan showing this build record can be found below.

    This build record 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 donate or join.

    It is also possible that you could have another number or manufacturer if this description doesn't match your dinghy. Feel free to reply here if you have any other questions.
