    Looking for build record for an Old Town, Serial number 206778 16
    The HIN number is XTC06778M76A
    I am trying to find out if this canoe has a factory applied fiberglass skin (which it appears to be).
    Thanks in advance for the info,
    Rich

    Welcome, the Old Town canoe with serial number 206778 is a 16 foot long guide model with fiberglass in place of canvas. It was built between March and July, 1975. The original exterior paint color was yellow. It was shipped on August 4th, 1975 to Conway, South Carolina. The back side of the record shows when the warranty card was returned. Scans showing both sides of this build record can be found below.

    These scans 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 http://www.wcha.org/catalogs/old-town/records/ 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 http://www.wcha.org/about-wcha to learn more about the WCHA and http://www.wcha.org/store/membership to join.

    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.
