old town canoe # 170357

Hello James--

Old Town 170357 is a 16 foot Otca model canoe that was finished August-September 1960. It has a keel and was originally light blue (I think the first word is "Lt" but could be "dk" for dark). The canoe was shipped to Knoxville, TN, on March 27, 1961. A copy of this scan is attached below-- click on it to get a larger image.

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 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.
