    Welcome, the Old Town canoe with serial number 217115 is a 17 foot long Chipewyan model with aluminum inserts in the rails that weighed 78 pounds. It was built between March and April, 1977. The original exterior color was green. It shipped on April 22nd, 1977 to Tallahassee, Florida. The back side of the record indicates that there were some scratches on the inside. Scan 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 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 donate or 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.
