Hi Steve--

Compare the serial number at both ends, as 170718 is a 17 foot canoe and this may be the wrong record.

Old Town 170718 is a 17 foot Otca model canoe, finished from December 1960 to May 1961, painted design #4 and shipped to Marlin Marine on Robert Street in West St. Paul, MN on May 18, 1961.

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.

You may want to check the digits in the serial number again as Kathy suggested. My guess is that you may have the Old Town canoe with serial number 170713. This is a 16 foot long Otca model with a keel. It was built between December, 1960 and February, 1961. The original exterior paint color was dark green. It was shipped on March 6th, 1961 to Horseheads, New York. A scan of this build record can be found by following the link at the attached thumbnail image 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. 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.

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