The Old Town canoe with serial number 183310 is a 16 foot long fiberglass model, jade in color with white decks. It was built between June and July, 1969. It was shipped on July 31st, 1969 to Paramus, New Jersey. A scan of this build record can be found by following the link at the attached thumbnail image below.

This scan 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 http://www.wcha.org/ot_records/ 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 http://www.wcha.org/wcha/ to learn more about the WCHA and http://www.wcha.org/join.php to join.

It is also possible that they 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.

is that FG for "fiberglass"?

Most of the oldest Old Town models were designated with two letter abbreviations like HW, IF, CR, GS, etc. so it is not surprising that their first canoe model which wasn't made of wood would follow in this tradition. The official model name in the catalogs was FG but it was also clear that it stood for fiberglass.

Looks familiar

Ok, could you please post some more pics of your canoe. I have a canoe that looked alot like this canoe and I am trying to figure out what it is. Thanks Andy
 
This model was last listed in the 1975 catalog as shown below. More information about this and other Old Town models can be found on the Old Town Canoe Company Catalog Collection CD. This is available from http://www.wcha.org/catalog/ and http://www.dragonflycanoe.com/cdrom.htm on the web. The serial number should be embedded in the hull along the rail near one end if you want a copy of the build record.

I found this pic from 77.

The cover of the 1977 catalog that you attached actually shows a 15 foot long Chipewyan model made out of Oltonar or acrylonitrille butadiene styrene (ABS) plastic as described on the top of page three and pages six to nine in that catalog if anyone is really concerned about details like this.
