Requesting build history on OT #172913

The Old Town canoe with serial number 172913 is a 16 foot long Otca model with thwarts in place of seats. It was built between March and April, 1963. The original exterior paint color was dark brown to match a sample. It shipped on April 26th, 1961 to Harrison, Maine. A scan of this build record can be found by following the link at the attached thumbnail image below.

This scan was 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 if you want more details. I hope that you will join or contribute to the WCHA so that services like this can continue. See to learn more about the WCHA and 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.
