Build record for 18-172928


Enthusiastic about Wooden Canoes
Please forward the build record for 18' square end canoe with sponsons # 18-172928. Thanks guys.
The Old Town canoe with serial number 172928 is an 18 foot long square end model with half ribs, a keel, outside stems, a floor rack, sponsons, a rowing seat, and a bang plate along the full length of the keel. It was built between March, 1963 and April, 1965. The original exterior paint color was dark green. It shipped on April 15th, 1965 to Melvin Village, New Hampshire. A scan of this build record can be found by following the link at the attached thumbnail image below.

These scans and several hundred thousand others 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 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 to learn more about the WCHA and to join.

It is also 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.
