19 Feet 1945 Gar Wood Commander

“We Three” has been a fixture on Long Lake in the Adirondacks since she was delivered to the original owner, WA Raney in April 1946. After the passing of Mr. Raney, his daughter sold the Gar Wood to Dr. and Mrs. Shelly in April 1996 and she remains on Long Lake to this day. She won numerous boat shows from South Carolina and North Carolina. The Clayton Boat show, is where she won Best preserved, Best Gar Wood and a few “Best of show”. This Gar Wood is about as original as any boat one can find other than some of the upholstery which was really beginning to show some wear. All the wood on her, including her bottom, is original. One might wonder when looking at her due to the lighter “sapwood” which is found on her forward port side, but that is exactly how she came from the factory. She was built to go to the 1946 New York Boat Show, but that show, due to the war, never became a reality and she was then taken to Hearn’s Dept. Store as a boat to use for sales. She was the only Gar Wood of her kind built and primarily for that show. Mr. Ranney had taken his daughter to Hearns to purchase clothing and saw this particular boat, inquired about purchasing one like it and was told “he should consider purchasing this boat due to rumors that the company would or might be closing in the near future. He purchased her on the spot. Mr. Raney purchased the boat right off the floor from the Dept. Store in January of 1946.

15'6 Feet 1958 Lyman Outboard

The culmination of a 3-year restoration project, my 1958 Lyman is picture-perfect and ready to make your summer memorable. This beauty is a rare, 15'6 runabout with numerous upgrades and a 1962 Evinrude Big Twin 40HP Outboard in as pristine condition as the day she came home from the factory. The keel and all structural parts are made from clear white oak, the planking material is made from 3/8" Clinker-built fir that is overlapped at the joints so that it is twice as strong as straked hulls. The decks, rails, stern and all of the interior wood is made from Philippine Mahogany. All of the hull fasteners used were specifically built for the Lyman Co. out of silicon cut bronze clout nails that were deeply embedded and reversed clinched. The literature from the day proudly declared, and is still evident 65 years later, that the fasteners never need to be tightened! In fact one of the reasons these hulls are so durable, strong, and safe is that there are approximately 2000 clout nails and more than 850 screws used in planking alone. What makes this Lyman different than any new boat is that it will never be worth any less than what you pay for it as long as it is properly cared for. Boat Details: We tried to keep as much of the original patina as possible while still breathing new life into her with multiple layers of high-end topside primer and paint as well as exterior/interior varnish. She was carefully stripped and sanded by hand. All of the hardware on the boat is period correct and for the most part, nickel-plated brass, including the anchor guides, bow base cleat, and the stern cleats. The Perko bow light has the original late 1950s port and starboard glass lenses, as well as a hole for a flag pole. Stainless steel full length rub rails have been installed on the gunwale and stern spray rails. One of her more unique features is her 1940s Chris Craft split speedster windscreen frame and glass. All of the wiring has been replaced and upgraded to modern standards using high quality marine-grade BlueSea fuse panels, copper wiring, and period correct switch gear. Extra capacity has been added in case the next user intends to install a modern marine radio and\or USB charger. The stern has been pre-wired for a stern light if desired. A second new battery has been added for redundancy along with an NOS A/B switch, a new bilge pump, and a new (unused) in-hull transducer (depth finder) Engine Details: The motor is a 1962 Evinrude Big Twin 40HP. These motors are renowned for their simplicity and reliability. The motor is in perfect running order and looks amazing on the inside and out. The motor was repainted with the original, authentic Evinrude polychromatic blue. The carb, ignition (points\condensers) have recently been rebuilt. The fuel lines and electrical wiring have been replaced as needed. The lower unit oil was replaced when the impeller (water pump) was replaced. When the lower unit was apart, the gear case was inspected and there was minimal to no wear. The compression for the upper and lower cylinders is 95 and 99 respectively. The current and previous owner have always run the motor with AVG (leaded high octane aviation fuel) since the mid 1980s therefore it is likely that this motor has never seen any ethanol fuel! That said this motor will safely run on unleaded fuel but like any modern small motor. Trailer Details: Trailer has been rebuilt from the ground up and re-configured for a wooden outboard boat. There are 3 rollers on the keel including directly under the transom that hold the weight of the boat. The side rails of the trailer have been covered with slick plastic sliders that balance the boat and make it easy to load and unload the trailer. A new Fulton trailer tongue, folding trailer bracket, and spare tire bracket have also been added. This allows the boat to be stored in a standard length residential garage. All of the fasteners on the trailer have been replaced including the u-bolts. The wiring, lights, heavy duty 7-pin coupler, safety chains, winch chain, rear tie-downs, and tires are all new. The trailer is over-built and therefore will protect the boat while its being transported. The trailer was originally configured for a heavy inboard powered runabout which certainly shows. Other Information: All of the accessories that you will need also come with the boat, including a custom made cover with wooden ribs, life preservers, floating cushions, new floating emergency kit (including flares and first aid), beautiful oak oars, two anchors, new docking bumpers, 2 floating keys, and enough new line for 2 boats. Delivery options available.

20 Feet 1949 Chris-Craft Custom Runabout

The Chris_Craft 20ft Custom Runabout succeeded the pre-war 19ft Custom Runabout or Barrel Back. Only 369 hulls were produced between 1946 and 1949. This is hull number 334, was built in the final year. It was among the first post-war runabouts to showcase the distinctive blond decking. During their heyday, these boats were known for their luxuriousness, featuring genuine leather upholstery and a sturdy 4-piece folding windshield. The current owner acquired this boat in 2010 and began restoration work in 2011. A new upholstery was installed, while the bottom, although in good condition, underwent sanding, tightening of fasteners, recaulking of seams, and a fresh coat of bottom paint. The boat's bottom swells tightly. Additionally, a new chine plank was added on the starboard side. The topside finish was stripped and meticulously redone with 12 coats of varnish. The bilge was thoroughly cleaned and repainted. The correct Iva Lite spotlight was installed, and all chrome accents were re-chromed, buffed, and reinstalled. All the original factory hardware, including the fold-down windshield, is included with the boat. In 2006, the engine was replaced with a small block 350 V8. The fuel tank and lines were also replaced at that time. In the spring of 2021, routine maintenance was performed, including rebuilding the carburetor, installing a new water pump impeller, fitting new spark plugs, and replacing the throttle cable. In the spring of 2023, the bottom was repainted. The boat comes complete with a custom cover and a custom tandem axle trailer. Due to their rarity, few of these boats remain in existence. With its ideal 20-foot size, the 20' Custom Runabout is a perfect runabout, and this one is ready to be enjoyed!

17 Feet 1950 Chris Craft Special Runabout

This boat "Putt Putt"was purchased by me in 1990 and went through an extensive restoration at that time that included a complete new West System Epoxy encapsulated marine plywood bottom to make it lighter and non-soak so it could be trailered easily. The engine was completely rebuilt with new crankshaft, pistons, gaskets, seals, etc and modernized with the addition of a 12 volt electrical system, oil filter, oil pressure safety switch, electric fuel pump. The chrome which is complete was re-chromed professionally the same year. In addition a center mount auto bilge pump was installed. New upholstery and complete new varnish in 2021. Awesome little boat!! We used this boat approx 2-3 weeks a year until about 1995 and then was used very little for the next 26 years but was kept in our garage under cover. In 2021 my daughter wanted to use it as part of her wedding so the varnish was redone (14 coats) and the upholstery was redone and I pulled it 1100 miles to Maine for the 3 weeks we were there. It ran perfectly and is now back in our garage in NC. My estimate is that it has probably has less than 200 hours use since the 1990 restoration. It is a beautiful very functional craft that is great for family activities with the open back which makes it a great watersport boat for skiing, tubing, etc. Carries up to 5 people and I love skiing behind it. The boat came from Lake Lanier in SC originally and I used the boat on Lake Keowee in SC mostly and spent several weeks on Lake Webb in Maine 2 different times. It has always been trailered since I owned it. This boat needs nothing currently except for love and care and routine maintenance. Thank you.
