    The Old Town with serial number 216191 is a 16 foot long, Guide model with fiberglass covering a keel. It was built between February and March, 1977. The exterior paint color was blue. It was shipped on April 24th, 1979 to Bend, Oregon. 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 they 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.
