    I'm trying to ID an Old Town square stern canoe. Here are some photographs. I'm having a hard time with the serial number, which looks something like 760 15 with maybe "PB" hand carved after the serial number. I didn't have a tape on me, but I paced it out at around 20'. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

    Nice looking canoe. Wadda ya want for it?.... Looks like 780 15 to me, which would make you think 15 feet. Looks longer though. Try checking the registration records with the state. Any serial number in the back? Wipe off the serial number and smear some color and wipe that off lightly. Probably should park it in my garage until you resolve this issue......

    I would say 760 too.
    Isn't there anything before those numbers?

    There are three digits in front of the 760. Some paint stripper will make them more visible.

    I'll go have a look and see. The canoe is not ours *yet*, so I don't want to be too invasive, but I would like to know some generalities about the boat before buying it. It does have some damage and will require some work (see attached picture). 20130705_084036.jpg
