About the Canoe
The 25' Old Town 'War Canoe' was built in 1930 and shipped to Torrington CT. The Old Town War Canoes, which are either 25' or 34', were made with summer camps in mind, and many summer camps up and down the east coast had a fleet of them. This particular boat has lived a long life on and off the water, and is currently being restored in a Montville chicken barn. Originally a deep blue, the boat came to Jackie covered in green-painted fiberglass. The big question is: What color should it become?
