This is a twenty-eight foot Enclosed Bridge built in Algonac, Michigan, United States of America in 1939. It was sold to their dealer, Boulanger Yachts, Lachine, Quebec, Canada. Mr.McBride of Baie d’Urfe ,Quebec was the first purchaser in the summer of 1939. It had a 4 cylinder Hercules Marine Engine with a 2 to 1 reduction drive. The boat was used very little during the next 5 years due to World War II and gas rationing. In 1949 McBride sold the boat to a Mr. O’Connell who owned a hunting and fishing resort in the Laurentian area north of Montreal. the boat was used on an mountain lake to take guests fishing. In 1961 O’Connell sold the the resort less the boat. He had the boat shipped to his waterfront home in Ste.Genevieve, Quebec. The water being too shallow for the boat so he traded in on a Jet powered Runabout with Ste.Annes Marine Service, in Ste.Anne de Bellevue of which J.N. St.Aubin was the owner. In 1963 St.Aubin took personal possessions of the boat and moved it from Ste.Annes to Lake of Two Mountains and the Hudson Yacht Club. In the late 70’s the boat was returned to Ste.Annes Marine and the 100 H.P. Gray Marine engine was installed. Changes in the steering and engine controls making for a fly-bridgetype of yacht. Other changes in the main cabin were also done. A holding tank was installed. For only a few years was the boat winter stored at HYC. It was fitted for a four wheel wagon type trailer and from then on it was towed by Station Wagon to the St.Aubin’s home which was 2 Kms. from HYC for storage in a green house type of building which did not touch any part of the boat. This meant having the boat ‘s interior completely ventilated while in storage. The boat has been launched every year except one due to major hull and cabin repairs. The boat has had a professional Marine Survey done which it passed to qualify for insurance. I could mention the installation of the convertible top but that has nothing to do with the wood part of the boat.
