    The Old Town with serial number 173577 is a 16 foot long Otca model with a keel. It was made between December, 1963 and February, 1964. The original exterior color was red. It shipped to Worcester, Massachusetts on May 7th, 1964. Some of the planking was bad so it sold at a discount as a factory second. A scan showing this build record can be found below.

    This build record scan and several hundred thousand more 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 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 renew.

    It is also 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.
