Albert Ames began his boatbuilding career working in a shop run by Herb Ditchburn during WWII. Following the war, he worked for Hunter Boats of Orillia, Ontario. In the 1950s, the Ames brothers built a handful of custom boats ranging from 18 to 28 feet in length. Their designs drew similarities from several of the regional builders, with a flare of their own. They would typically complete one boat per winter in their small, Orillia, Ontario shop. This stunning gentleman's racer features full mahogany construction, Muskoka "egg crate" ventilated flooring, a sleek low sheerline, and a powerful dual-quad Chrysler 413cid wedge engine hooked up to a foot throttle. This racer is an absolute thrill!
