    The Old Town canoe with hull identification number XTC21746m78k and serial number 221746 is a 16 foot long fiberglass Laker model that weighed 73 pounds. It was built between May and June, 1978. The original exterior gelcoat color was desert white. It shipped on June 30th, 1978 to Charleston, West Virginia. 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 others 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 your canoe. Feel free to reply here if you have any other questions.
