1961 Old Town
1961 Old Town 15ft Canoe.
SN: 171675 15
Absolutely beautiful and very solid canoe with restoration just completed. Restoration included sanding and 5 coats of UV varnish on inner hull and trim and, as specified in the build sheet, dark green paint – 4 coats of marine enamel on the exterior. Also,inner floor board was repaired. The 15ft 50 pound Old Town canoes go pretty fast as very desirable for canoe camping trips as lighter to portage. Many use 15ft Old Town’s as display canoes in cabins and restaurants as a perfect size to show off features but not to consume too much space.
Please note that if purist, this canoe is not for you. As happened to many canvas canoes in the 1970’sand 1980’s, a previous owner replaced the canvas with fiberglass. The fiberglass was in perfect condition so I did not strip it and replace with canvas. Some find fiberglass much more durable than canvas with much better paint finish.
Please feel free to ask questions. I can deliver to within 100 miles free of charge with added cost if longer distances. Else, local pickup or buyer arranged commercial shipping.
