Bought at yard sale about 6 years ago. Repaired cover and love it in the water. Wondering if the build sheet is available online. Bob
The Old Town with serial number 171264 is a 16 foot long Guide model with thwarts in place of seats, and a keel. It was built between July and August, 1961. The original color was pale blue. It shipped on August 18th, 1961 to Ellensburg, Washington.

A scan of this build record can be found by following the link at the thumbnail image attached below. This scan and several hundred thousand others were created with substantial grants from the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association (WCHA) and others as you probably know well by now. 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 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 renew.

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

Canoe is still in Ellensburg & back in use after being abused by college students for many years. Thanks for the build sheet. Bob
