    The Old Town canoe with serial number 182227 is an 18 foot long Otca model with a keel, a mast seat, and a mast step. It was built between December, 1968 and February, 1969. The original exterior paint color was red. It shipped on March 30th, 1970 to Damariscotta, Maine. A scan of this build record can be found by following the link at the attached thumbnail image below.

    This scan and several hundred thousand others 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 http://www.wcha.org/ot_records/ 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 http://www.wcha.org/about-the-wcha/ to learn more about the WCHA and http://store.wcha.org/WCHA-New-Membership.html to renew.

    It is also possible that you could have another number or manufacturer if this description don't match the canoe. Feel free to reply here if you have any other questions.
