OT 173400 information

Hi-- Old Town 173400 is an 18 foot Otca model canoe that was finished October 1963- January 1964. It was finished with bilge keels in addition to the central "regular" keel, sponsons, and was shipped with a floor rack. Originally it was painted dark green. Shipped to Newington, Connecticut on June 4, 1964---just about time for a b-day celebration! 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.
