    Welcome, the Old Town canoe with serial number 191488 is an 18 foot long fiberglass Carleton model with no keel that weighed 89 pounds. It was built in September, 1972. The original exterior gelcoat color was dark green. It shipped on October 23rd, 1973 to Durham, North Carolina. The back side of this record shows that there were some scratch marks which were sanded and buffed out. Scans showing both sides of this build record can be found by following the links at the attached thumbnail images 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 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. Feel free to reply here if you have any other questions,

    Benson
