Hey there. I am looking for the identity of an old Old Town. The Serial Number is 175412 18. If anyone could find out the year and model, really any information at all, would be much appreciated. Thanks Gabe
Well, Gabe - It ain't THAT old! (says the fat, bald, gray-whiskered man)
This boat is a 18' Guide model, built on an OTCA form. Painted GS (Guide Special) Green and delivered in June, 1966 to Orange, MA. A copy of the build record is attached.
Scans of approximately 210,000 records were created with substantial grants from the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association (WCHA) and others. Additional information about the project to preserve these records is available at http://www.wcha.org/catalogs/old-town/records/ if you want more details. Please join WCHA or make a tax deductable contribution 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.html to join. If you are already a WCHA member, THANK YOU!
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.
