Built by Charles H Wilbur he was part of the shop known as Wilbur and Wheelock of Clayton, NY. There is no nameplate other than the engine plate which is on a 1916 Ford Model "T". The serial no on the engine is 21 which may refer to the year converted by the St Lawrence marine Co. The engine was rebuilt by a restorer in Iowa who has rebuilt hundreds of model A's, B's and T's. The hull has been faired using cedar strips and epoxies with West System. The area along the keel however has not and it takes several days to soak up. The launch has been adapted to 8V power for the bilge and period lighting. The fuel tank has been cleaned and lined. The seating was non-existent when I purchased the boat, so the layout was adapted from observing other launches and built to fit the hull.
