13.5 feet Feet 1937 Thompson Bro's Boat Mfg. Co., Peshtigo, WI

This original vintage 1937 Thompson Bro's wooden cedar strip row boat was fully restored by our late father Robert (Bob) Kraemer in May 1986. It is in excellent condition (hardwood oak seats) and ready for the water! The boat comes with a trailer and 1949-1952 (Serial #350385 so it is that year range based on our research) vintage Mercury KF5 Super5 5HP outboard motor. It also comes with fully restored wooden oars, carpet pad for the bottom, classic vintage anchor, and battery operated bow and stern lights. Our father Bob was an avid duck and goose hunter (as well as whitetail and mule deer, turkey, bear, elk hunter and fisherman) and who was a life-long conservationist with an eye and love of the outdoors, which he passed these traditions on to his 4 sons and grandchildren. He was a life-long supporter of Ducks Unlimited and was the editor and publisher of the DU Webfoot News for over 25 years. Our dad was born in 1937 and DU was also first established in 1937 so he purchased this 1937 Thompson Bro's wooden cedar-strip boat as a way to commemorate the year DU was established and year of his birth. He completely restored it by himself in May 1986 (see plate of restoration date with his name and month/year stamped in the rear hull of the boat). The boat has been kept in storage and is in excellent condition (just like it was in May 1986 when he restored it), and is ready for another collector to add this age-old beauty to their collection or continue to use for duck hunting, fishing, or just for enjoying the serenity of a local lake. This Thompson Bro's wooden cedar strip boat and vintage Mercury outboard have many more years to go!
