    Welcome, the Old Town canoe with serial number 786886 is a 16 foot long Guide model. It was built between May, 2002 and December, 2003. It should have a hull identification number on the starboard stern with and encoded shipping date. See https://www.usps.org/national/safety/HIN/HIN.pdf for more details about how to interpret this information. It appears to have shipped to Bedford, New York. A scan showing this build record can be found 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 http://www.wcha.org/catalogs/old-town/records/ 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 http://www.wcha.org/about-wcha to learn more about the WCHA and http://www.wcha.org/store/membership 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,

    Benson
