20 Feet 1935 Gar Wood Deluxe Utility
This 1935 Gar Wood is said to be the eighth of 100 20' utility models built between 1935 and 1938. The boat features Philippine mahogany construction, an open cockpit design with offset seats, and a Chrysler Crown inline-six. First shipped by rail car to George N. Varney Company on Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire, it was brought to Lake Tahoe and named Whiskey in 1992. A restoration was carried out by Western Runabouts of Lake Tahoe in 1993, and the vessel reportedly earned best of show at the subsequent 21st Annual Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance. The V-type hull is made of mahogany and measures 20' long and 6' 8? wide. “Gar Wood” script can be found on both sides of the hull, and the boat’s name, Whiskey, is painted on the transom. Black rubber step pads are fitted on the dark-stained gunwales, and bright hardware includes the cutwater, rub rails, and quarter rails. Comes on a tandem axle trailer.

Arguably the most prolific and significant raceboat and American history, "Miss America X", U-10, was the finale in Garfield Wood's dominance of the powerboat racing and world record setting career.

The craft defended the title once again in 1933 and was subsequently retired, but held the record well into the mid 1960's.

Following a series of boat show and regatta appearances in the 1980's, "Miss America X" was comprehensively restored by Mayea Boatworks in the mid 1990's and has been on permanent display since this time.
