This is a one of a kind HBGATES. It has been stored inside sense the day it was purchased, has never been in water or used. It is in new condition and it's historical and personal history is remarkable.

This is a great deal on a1965 Old Town Canoe with a Square Stern and Keel. This boat comes with trailer, orignal oars, brass oar locks and 1958 Johnson Seahorse 51/2 hp outboard. The motor runs great and pushes this boat along very nicely. This boat rows like a dream. The interior wood is in terrific condition. The canvas could use a coat of paint.
I purchased this Old Town 16 foot Guide Model cedar & canvas new in the Spring of 1964 with SN:173423 and has not been used for the past 40 years and stored inside. Everything is original, however I recently revarnished the interior, and repainted the hull with the original green paint and varnish purchased directly from Old Town.
