15' Sponsoned OT

Blue Viking

Wooden Canoe Maniac
Have an opportunity to bid on a restoration on this one the Serial of this one is # 167657 15 if I have it right. Any history would be apreciated
 
The Old Town canoe with serial number 167657 is a 15 foot long square end canoe model with half ribs, a keel, outside stems, sponsons, and a rowing seat. It was built between May, 1958 and August, 1959. The original exterior paint color was dark green. It shipped on May 24th, 1960 to Tyngsboro, Mass. A scan of this build record can be found by following the link at the attached thumbnail image below.

This scan was 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/catalogs/old-town/records/ if you want more details. I hope that you will renew your membership to the WCHA so that services like this can continue. See http://www.wcha.org/wcha/ to learn more about the WCHA and http://www.wcha.org/join.html to join.

It is likely 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.
