Just purchased yesterday. "Used twice and stored inside for 40 years" and it looks it.
Welcome and congratulations, the Old Town canoe with serial number 210324 is a 15 foot long Lightweight model. It was built between December, 1975 and July, 1976. The original exterior paint color was blue. It shipped to Newbury, Massachusetts on April 20th, 1979. 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 https://www.woodencanoe.org/about to learn more about the WCHA and https://www.woodencanoe.org/shop to donate or join.
It is 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.
Thanks very much for the quick reply. The Ser # looks right and the place it was shipped to is consistent to where I found it.
