need info on a 17 ft squareback w/serial # 189462

The Old Town canoe with serial number 189462 is a 17 foot long square ended fiberglass Carleton model. It was built between April and May, 1972. The original exterior gelcoat color was white and the weight was 102 pounds. It shipped on May 12th, 1972 to Sylacauga, Alabama. The back side of the record shows that it was patched in several places and the warranty card was returned from Sylacauga, Alabama. Scan showing both sides of of this build record can be found by following the links at the thumbnail images attached 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 renew.

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.
