Being offered for sale is a 24 foot 1907 Launch built by John Walters, known as the "Edmonton Boat Builder" who built large steam boats used in the northern rivers. He became prominent in the Edmonton business community, eventually having a museum named after him. "Otter" was built for the Bow River Boat House at the world famous Banff Springs Hotel. "Otter" is a classic displacement laucnh with carvel planked cypress on oak faming. She has an attractive and now rare drake tail stern and very closely resembles some of the early Fay & Bowen launches as well as designs used by Gidley and Ditchburn. She is powered by a 4 cylinder Kermath engine, complete with the original operators manual. Complete with all original hardware, Otter is now ready for restoration.
