    Greetings. I have an Old Town Canoe with serial number 210329. The complete number on the starboard aft plate is XTC10329M76D. Could you tell me the manufacture year, model, and material this canoe was made from? Thank you for you help!

    Welcome, the Old Town canoe with serial number 210329 is a 17 foot long Chipewyan Tripper model with aluminum inserts in the rails that weighed 80 pounds. It was built in October, 1975. The original exterior color was red. It shipped on November 17th, 1975 to Seattle, Washington. A scan showing 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 http://www.wcha.org/catalogs/old-town/records/ if you want more details. I hope that you will contribute, 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. It is made from Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) plastic which was also known as Oltonar or Royalex. Feel free to reply here if you have any other questions.
