21.5 Feet 1936 Greavette Custom Runabout

A spectacular example of the craftsmanship by Greavette Boatworks of Muskoka, Ontario; this "Special" 21.5 ' Runabout was built for Col. Moody, Vice President of Greavette Boats in 1936. She was one of only 6 hulls produced in this length. The uniqueness of this particular boat was that it was the only example with covered decks from the rear seat aft and was given "fancy upgrade" consisting of a custom windshield, steering wheel, instrument cluster and hardware. This rendition was named a "Custom", whereas all of the others were "Utility" hulls with an open rear cockpit and a motor box and standard hardware, basic instrument gauges and steering wheel. The boat was originally named "Rob Roy" after the Moody's two sons, Rob and Roy. Mr. Bruce Wilson, subsequent owner of Greavette Boats, acquired Rob Roy in the 1960's, replaced the original bottom and re-powered the boat with the current Chevrolet "327"cu.in. V8 engine. Rob Roy was purchased by Mr. R.E. McDermott, Port Carling ,ON , where it was boat housed at his summer cottage near Mortimer's Point, ON. The boat has been under the stewardship of her current owner since July of 1978. She was comprehensively restored in 1982-1983 with new decks, engine hatches, interior, dash, upholstery, floors, wiring, gauges, complete varnish and re-chrome and the boat was re-named "AliCat" after his daughter "Ali" and wife "Cathy". During the Fall of 2016 the "AliCat" underwent a refresh where she received a complete new transom and re-varnish of the decks and sides. She is in exceptional condition today and perfect example of a collectable, Canadian built classic!

16 Feet 1957 Thompson Sea Coaster

This 1957 Thompson Sea Coaster was restored both inside and out and will be sure to turn heads when you are on the water cruising in this wood stunner. The hull is all original 5-Ply Douglas Fir Laps. The laps were inspected, tested, and tight. The hull was then sanded and all bolt fittings were sealed with MarineRX 2-part epoxy to ensure another 70+ years of on-the-water fun. The hull received a full Pettit System paint finish, including three coats of Pettit Marine Primer, four coats of Pettit Topside Above-the-Waterline Gloss Polyurethane and four coats of Pettit Hydrocoat ECO Ablative Antifouling Paint below the waterline. The natural wood finishes on the exterior are mahogany and sealed with three coats of Pettit Flagship Gloss UV Protecting Varnish. The Sea Coaster's interior hull has been sanded and finished with two coats of Smith's Clear Penetrating Epoxy Sealer. The floors are beautiful teak slats that have been sanded and hand-rubbed with teak oil. The seat backs have been sanded and sealed with two coats of Pettit Flagship UV Clear Varnish. The bench seat cushions are made of new open-cell foam and covered with new marine vinyl. The decking brightwork is a mix of original and additional, period-correct hardware. The metal and wood rub rails are all original to the boat. I've added a mahogany rub rail strip and brass nail detail between the top and second lap to protect the lap edge. The windshield frame is solid mahogany and dovetail constructed. All new tempered safety glass was installed this year. New wiring has been run throughout. The motor is a beautifully restored 1956 Kiekhaefer Mercury Mark 30 with electric start and is paired with a 1956 Kiekhaefer Quicksilver mechanical control. No other way to put it, this boat is sexy! The trailer is a Holsclaw Trailer from the 70s

17 Feet 1948 Chris Craft Deluxe Runabout

This boat started its life after completion on March 5, 1948 in the Chris Craft factory in Algonac, MI with a delivery to the Kenneth E. Wilson company in Newport Beach, CA. Its refurbishment began in California in early 2003, it was “quick claimed” as an abandoned boat in the LA area outskirts by a retired Doctor George Sweeney. He brought it home and with a few friends, they replanked the bottom and sides (triple planking on bottom, double planking on sides). I believe he worked on it for about 5-6 years out in California and got the hull back into ship-shape applying the West no soak on the hull. Then I believe the boat was purchased by another doctor in Arkansas, moved there and little progress was made thru about 2012 on the boat. In about 2013, the boat was purchased again and moved to Hague, New York area where the restoration was completed. The boat work was done by Chad Dunklee and Walt Peterson (Chad was the manager of boat rebuilding at the Hacker Boat Company at that time). The engine and transmission was rebuilt to a 12V system and unleaded gas operation by Fish Brothers in the Hague New York area while the wood and chrome was refinished. The boat was completed in about 2015 and even entered into the Adirondack Chapter’s 40th Annual Lake George Rondezvous where it received an award. In May of 2016, I purchased the boat and returned it to its birthplace of Michigan, where it was enjoyed by many cruising the Big Crooked Lake in Brighton, MI. Regular service was done, a bilge blower was carefully installed to match existing dash switches, and the boat was re-varnished in early 2019 in the Algonac area by the old craftsmen of the Chris Craft factory there. The seams are tight, the varnish is shiny and the boat is a beautiful piece of art. Overall, it is in immaculate shape and ready for the next owner to care for it long into the future. I have a binder of original documents such as the “build sheet” from 1948, catalogs, and maintenance booklets to pass to the new owner, along with about 200 photographs of the original work done in California in the early 2000’s. Fully restored and Recently refinished, no soak hull, immaculate with trailer
