    Hi all, just purchased a beautiful Old Town Ranger, my first canoe! Serial # 227513--any info available? Thanks so much!

    Welcome and congratulations, the Old Town canoe with serial number 227513 is a 17 foot long, Chipewyan Ranger model. It was built in July, 1979. The original exterior vinyl color was green. It shipped on July 31st, 1979 to San Francisco, California. A scan showing this build record can be found 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 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 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.
