    The Old Town canoe with serial number 149369 is a 17 foot long, CS (Common Sense or middle) grade, Otca model with red western cedar planking, open spruce gunwales, a keel, and a floor rack. It was built between July, 1947 and January, 1948. The original exterior paint color was dark green. It shipped on January 9th, 1948 to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. A scan of this build record can be found by following the link behind the thumbnail image attached 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 canoe. Feel free to reply here if you have any other questions. Thanks,
