Build record for OT 171835-17

The Old Town canoe with serial number 171835 is a 17 foot long Otca model with a keel, sponsons, mast seat, rudder, and complete sail rig. It was built between February and May, 1962. The original exterior paint color was pale blue. It shipped on May 21st, 1962 to San Francisco, California. It may have moved to Belvedere, California by January, 1975 when there was a previous request for a copy of this build record. Scans showing both sides 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 also possible that you could have another number or manufacturer if this description doesn't match the canoe. Feel free to reply here if you have any other questions. Thanks,
