I know someone who has a 16 foot Old Town wood and canvas canoe that was supposedly built in the 30s. It appears to be in good shape. How much might this be worth? He is considering selling it. Is there a good market for older boats such that he may be able to sell it for what it’s worth, and if so where….????

The serial number should be stamped on one of the stems on the inside of the canoe. Old Town use to send a photo copy of that specific boat as to which model it is, when and where it originally was sold, how much it originally sold for. They also use to include photo copies of the pages from that years catalog for that particular canoe model. A phone call or email to Old Town might let you know if they are still doing this and what their fee now is for this packet. No this won't set the price for the canoe, but it at least will determine exactly which canoe it is and that might help determine the rarity or paddling characteristics for this particular boat.
They still do for boats prior to the 80|
