Can you lookup my Old Town canoe, please: serial number 167161

I'd like to see the build record if possible so I can consider what is required to restore it.

Welcome and congratulations, the Old Town canoe with serial number 167161 is a 16 foot long Otca model with a keel. It was built between February and November, 1958. The original exterior paint color was dark green. It shipped on April 17th, 1959 to Rochester, New York. The note at the bottom indicates that the filler had cracked so it was sold at a discount as a factory second as indicated on the top. A scan showing this build record can be found below.

This scan and several hundred thousand more 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/catalogs/old-town/records/ if you want more details. I hope that you will donate, join, or renew your membership to the WCHA so that services like this can continue. See https://www.woodencanoe.org/about to learn more about the WCHA and https://www.woodencanoe.org/shop to donate or join.

It is also possible that you could have another number or manufacturer if this description doesn't match the canoe. Feel free to reply here if you have any other questions.
