    Welcome, the Old Town with serial number 151371 is a 20 foot long, CS (Common Sense or middle) grade, guide model with western red cedar planking, open spruce gunwales, half ribs, and no keel. It was built between July and December, 1948. The original exterior paint color was G. S. (Guide's Special) green. It shipped on May, 17th, 1949 to Ashland, Maine. A scan showing 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 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 to learn more about the WCHA and to join.

    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.
