    If possible, I'd like to obtain the build record for Old Town canoe # 170556.
    Thank you.

    Welcome, the Old Town canoe with serial number 170556 is a 16 foot long Otca model with a keel. It was built between November and December, 1960. The original exterior paint color was dark green. It shipped on May 8th, 1961 to Green Bay, Wisconsin. A scan of this build record can be found below.

    This scan and several hundred thousand more 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 if you want more details. I hope that you will donate, join or renew your membership to the WCHA so that services like this can continue. See to learn more about the WCHA and to join.

    It is 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.
