Hi All, I am new to the forum but I have been a canoe enthusiast for most of my life. I used to have a 16' Old Town Guide from the early 60's but I had to sell it years ago because I lost my indoor storage and the boat was degrading to a point where I couldn't justify keeping it so I sent it to a better home. My life situation has changed significantly since then and I now have the means and space to work on and own another wood canvas canoe. I was looking for something big enough for two decent sized people, a week's worth or gear and room for the dog and this boat fit the bill. That said, I am not sure what I just bought. I think it's an Old Town Otca 18 footer but I am not entirely sure since the guy I bought it from had very little knowledge. If it is an Otca, it might be from before 1920 since it doesn't use the diamond shaped bolts for the seats and thwarts. I have a bunch of questions about how I should proceed, but I was hoping someone might be able to help me get started by confirming what we have here. Any help would be appreciated!
