1917 Old Town Canoe For Sale
This classic 17' canoe was built by Old Town in 1917 and is a “CS” (common sense) grade OTCA, Serial # 42869, originally sold to the H.C. Reed Company in Milwaukee, WI. The original builder's records show white cedar planking, spruce gunwales and maple decks. It also has oak floor boards which I assume were original equipment. It was professionally restored in 1992 which included stem, rib, planking and deck repair, re-canvassing, repainting and spar varnish to protect and enhance the beautifully aged wood. It was given a fresh coat of paint and Spar varnish in the fall of 2019.
This canoe was paddled primarily on central Wisconsin rivers between 1992 and 2004 but has been sitting idle for the past 15 years, since I don’t get a chance to paddle much anymore. I am selling it with the hope that someone will enjoy this vintage Old Town as much as I have.
