    The Old Town canoe with serial number 175659 is 16 foot long Otca model with a keel. It was built between January and March, 1966. The original exterior paint color was dark green. It shipped on March 24th, 1966 to New Canaan, Connecticut. A scan of 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 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.
