    Looking for info on 17’ FG Old Town canoe, serial# XTC02323L788. Looking for Date of sale & estimate on current value. This canoe was purchased as part of a recent lake house bought in Central NY.
    Any info available through this group forum would be greatly appreciated! Robyn

    It is my sad duty to report that the scanned Old Town records stop just over 250,000 in 1984 so no one here can provide more detailed information for your serial number 302323. The hull identification number you provided indicates that it shipped in 1988. The information at http://www.usps.org/national/safety/HIN/HIN.pdf may help you interpret this number. The information at https://www.wcha.org/forums/index.php?threads/57/ has a good summary of how to value a wooden canoe. Most of those comments will apply to a fiberglass canoe but the price range is much lower. Similar fiberglass canoes commonly sell on eBay for a few hundred dollars. Let me know if there is anything else that I can do to help. Good luck,

    Benson

    If you're looking to sell it, one place to consider posting it is https://paddling.com/classifieds/
    I have no idea how successful sellers are, but at least it's advertising to an audience focused on paddlers...
