Old Town number search


Enthusiastic about Wooden Canoes
Could I possibly get some information on this serial number 173462 15

Thank You
Hello, Mike--

Old Town 173462 is a 15 foot fifty pound model canoe, finished from November 1963 to January 1964. It was fitted with a keel and painted what appears to be a bright (Br) color--- green? Originally shipped to Sanders Sport Shop in Cortland, NY, on June 18, 1964.

The scan of this record 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 and anyone else reading this will join or renew membership in 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.
