I am thinking of purchasing a Old Town sponson with the serial # 176957 18. Can anyone provide me with any info and price range???
 
Thanks for for quick reply!!! It is a 18' square stern old town sponson canoe i will check again the number is 17 (the third # is hard to see) 957.
I will look again in a couple of days.

Thanks again
 
I have just returned from looking at this Old Town sponson again and I would say that the number is 171957. Hope this turns up to be a 18' sponson????????

THANKS

Yup-- this should be it:

171957 is an 18' square end paddling canoe finished April-June of 1962. It has half-ribs, a keel, outside stems, sponsons, rub rails and a rowing seat and originally had design #45. Shipped 5-17-63 to Woodland, ME. A copy of the scan is attached below-- click 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.
