What name plate did Old Town use?........

Hi All,

I was a member here for years but have since forgotten my password so had to make a new account.

I am finishing up an Old Town I actually did find on a burn pile. I rescued it on a Wednesday, match to be struck on Saturday morning.

I have a copy of the build sheet someplace but I think it was about mid 60's.

My question, actually two questions, is what name plate would this have had? Decal? brass metal?
Second question is does anybody make these decals or plates for restorations?

Thanks for your help.

Thank you both, seems they are out of the decal I need. Any thoughts as to when someone will be getting these reprinted?

We are looking into this at the moment. I will keep you updated. You have done a very nice job on your restoration. Congratulations! It will be great to get the appropriate decal on the deck.

These are currently listed at https://www.islandfallscanoe.com/old-town-parts-and-materials.aspx although I don't know if they have the 1963 version of the decal with the red bar that you want in stock. Many of the restorers listed at https://www.woodencanoe.org/builders-suppliers keep a some of these on hand so you may want to contact a few in your area to see if they have one to sell. There is also decal paper available for desktop printers if you want to make one yourself. The problem is that water slide decals have a relatively short shelf life so an old one may not work. Great restoration,
