    The Old Town canoe with serial number 172355 is an 18 foot long Guide model with a keel. It was built between August and September, 1962. The original exterior paint color was red. It shipped on February 11th, 1963 to Huron, South Dakota. 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 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 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.
