This is a 1963 vintage Old Town wood and canvas canoe, lovingly used and stored inside or covered by us- her second owners. The original owners bought her as their wedding present, and we paddled her decades later to our own Maine island wedding.
Serial #175310 can be researched for more specific details, but I remember her being described by the original owners as a 1963 Old Town 18' Guide, Old Town's top model with mahogany gunwales, ash ribs, and cedar planking. She has a 36" beam and is 13" deep. She is flat-bottomed, with slight tumblehome and very little rocker.
This is the authentic and iconic handmade Maine watercraft. This model is the workhorse of the Old Town line, designed for safety and comfort, and she glides seamlessly through the water.
She is in good usable condition, with all the character and patina you would expect from a boat of this vintage.
We would love for her to go to someone who will enjoy her as we did. Her name is Gertie, and she has been a well-loved family member.
