I would like to have a build record for Old Town #177545. I know it's a baby as far as OT canoes go, but she is a long awaited canoe for me.
Hi Duane,

Congratulations on your canoe!

Old Town 177545 is an 18' Otca model finished between January and May 1967. It was fitted with a keel and mast seat and step, painted pale blue, then shipped to Huntsville, Alabama on May 26, 1967.

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.

Saw this canoe on Ebay I believe a few weeks back. It is a very nice looking canoe in great condition. Enjoy.
