    Welcome, the Old Town canoe with serial number 182352 is a 15 foot long Trapper model with a keel. It was built between January and April, 1969. The original exterior paint color was maroon. It shipped on April 10th, 1969 to Shrewsbury, Mass. A scan of this build record can be found by following the link at the attached thumbnail image below.


    This scan 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 join or renew your membership to the WCHA so that services like this can continue. See to learn more about the WCHA and to join.

    It is also possible that you could have another number or manufacturer if this description doesn't match the canoe. Feel free to reply here if you have any other questions.

    Thank you for your reply. This canoe was purchased at the 2017 assembly. I have always had canoes, but this is my first wooden canoe. Thanks again for responding so promptly! I appreciate it!
