So a friend of mine has an older canoe that he's thinking about selling and wants to know what it is.
The info he has provided to me is as follows:
There is a model name on it "Wilderness"
It's 17 feet long.
Pull-Up Strap Handle Kit
Recreational Kayak Paddle
URCHIN Portable Anchor

Did the discovery go all the way back to '89? I didn't realize that Poly boats went back quite that far.

Old Town introduced the Discovery series in 1984.

Of course, we don't know that the boat is a Discovery model but Discos were and are polyethylene.

It also has a "White" sticker on each side. I had read somewhere that OT bought out white many years ago.

I believe that White Canoe Company had a wood/canvas model called the Wilderness back when.

Old Town keeps the most accurate records of any company producing canoes. All you need is the serial number and Johnson's phone number and you'll have all the information you're looking for.
