    I just picked up what i believe to be an Old Town wood/canvas canoe in NJ. I would appreciate any information you have on it. The serial number is 94575. I can't wait to hear from you. It needs restoration and I just need to clear out some garage space. Thanks for the info in advance..

    Stantheman,

    This canoe was shipped on February 27, 1925, to Dover, N.J. It was built as a 17' Otca Model, grade "AA" with mahogany gunwales, decks, seats and thwarts. It was also ordered with a keel, floor rack and a special #23 paint design. Check the latest Wooden Canoe for this design. The build record is attached.

    Thanks,

    Ric

    Thank you

    Thanks Ric for your timely and helpful response. I am not a member of the wcha yet, but will be joining. The keel wasn't with the boat when I got it, however i thought maybe it had one at some point. Maybe i'll give the owner a call, he might have it in his garage. I ordered a few books that are mentioned a lot and can't wait to get started. I am totally new to a project like this so I am eager to learn. Thanks again for your help. I love the build record. Stan
