'Ole Yeller'
17' Old Town
circa 1904


Needs Restoration

17’ wood/canvas, Old Town 17 2417. Brown paint covers much of the interior so it was difficult to find a serial number, but it has been uncovered and knowledgeable individuals have confirmed it is an Old Town circa 1904. Bought in the condition seen in the current photos as a restoration project around 1973, but … you’ve heard it before, no time. Kept in a building since it was purchased until a month ago when it’s owner moved to a retirement home. Need to find this diamond in the rough a home before winter weather sets in. Would make a good winter project for someone capable. I believe it is structurally sound. In need of stripping, re-canvassing and so on. Could be great fun next Spring. Any interest, please contact me soon. Would love to tell Dad it is finally going to be restored.
