new owner of 20 footer

The Old Town canoe with serial number 172538 is a 20 foot long Guide with half ribs and a keel. It was built between October, 1962 and November, 1963. The original exterior canvas covering was Guide's Special green. It shipped on April 10, 1964 to Klamath Falls, OR. A scan of this build record can be found by following the link behind 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 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.
