Port Carling Boats BlogWelcome to the Port Carling Boats siteWelcome to the Port Carling Boats website! There's still time to register for our Annual WBA Banquet at the Canyon Creek Country Club beginning at 6 p.m. Our program will be provided by Donna Hunt, former editor of the Denison-Sherman Herald-Democrat.
Rangers Ballpark in Arlington was selected as the site to host the 2013 DFW International Boat Show. The WBA will make an appearance at the show, in a one-boat display provided as a courtesy by the show organizers. About 25 North Texas boat dealers and nearly 200 vendors will participate in the 10-day show.
The boat show will take place in a temporary 262,000-square-foot facility that will be constructed on Lot A at the corner of Randol Mill Road and Nolan Ryan Expressway.
When Dallasite Vance Sparks found a wooden shipping crate containing four pre-shaped Chris-Craft mahogany planks in the rafters of his late great-grandfather's garage, he had no idea what it was or what to do with it.
The planks were a rare shipment from the Caruthersville, MO Chris-Craft plant to Wirt Franklin of Ardmore, OK.
Well, if Troy Marshall and Robin McGeorge's Super Sport is the Beauty, then the 427 Chris-Craft V-8 that'll power it is surely the Beast.

Helping Troy and Robin were Marc Hill, Richard Haug, Seb Borrello, Jim Donovan and Bill Baldwin. Once the holidays and our annual banquet are behind us, it will be time to lay out our WBA calendar for 2013. As reported last month, the WBA has initiated a community service project in support of Denison, home of Yellow Jacket Boats. Please take a look in the shed or garage for the leftover parts or other saleable items you can donate to the club. We hope the site will satisfy your love of wooden boats, cottaging and the holiday lifestyle. An author and historian, Donna will bring warm, personal insights to the history of Denison and Yellow Jacket Boats.
Lew White has been invited to display his 1956 Willis Racing Runabout to represent the wooden boat heritage of the Dallas Fort Worth area.
His buddy, WBA member Dave Parker got the ball rolling, and before long, after research and consultation with WBA friends, the full story unfolded, and the planks found a home. After a very nice restoration by the dynamic duo, the engine needed to be lifted into place.
The late Gene Ramey's widow, Wanda, has donated 44 Yellow Jacket transom blanks to the club.

That's where the gantry, chainfall and willing help all available at the Lucas shop came in. We encourage you to join us for dinner, so we'll always have the required minimum number of diners to avoid a room charge.
1-10, will feature over six acres of a wide variety of recreational watercraft and boating equipment.
The rare crate and its contents will soon be in the permanent care of the Antique Boat Museum in Clayton, NY. It is hosted by Texas Rangers Enterprises group, which brings non-baseball related events to the ballpark, and the United Boat Dealers of North Texas. There are enough blanks to make 10 of the benches, which we will offer to donors in Denison as a fundraiser for the new high school football stadium. The Century is powered by a 6 cylinder Hercules engine (6 volt) with new fuel lines – in reasonable condition.
