Enjoy the professional quality drone video of the boats at the show held at John Allen’s wonderful dining facility on Gull Lake in Minnesota. Enjoy Part One of this annual tour of wooden boat shops in Muskoka Ontario, sponsored by the Toronto Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society. CLAYTON, New York (March 12, 2015) – The Antique Boat Museum (ABM), North America’s premier freshwater nautical museum based in Clayton, New York, announced today that the Caravan Stage Company will dock and perform at the Museum this coming August.
Since its founding in 1970, the Caravan has provided invaluable opportunities for young people from all sectors of their multi-faceted society and has traveled the globe reaching audiences of all walks of life. One of the most unique aspects to this theatre is that all of the performances are done aboard a 100-foot long, 90-foot tall ship, which serves as their stage.
The Clayton shows will be the only scheduled shows in Northern New York and on the United States side of the St. The Caravan performance known as ‘Hacked: the Treasure of the Empire’ integrates text, poetry, video, humor, music, movement, masks, props and special effects into a magical theatrical experience that is both compelling and inspirational. Tickets for the show are only $20 and can be ordered online at abm.org or by calling the ABM at 315-686-4104.
Also, if you aren’t inclined to take on ownership of a woody, but would love to get behind the wheel of a classic wooden boat, Stan Hunter has the answer! Traditional putty (still wet) had been applied to the deck seams of Bella Vista III, just before our visit.
Tom Adam’s Port Carling boat shop was abuzz this past Saturday as ACBS members gathered to hear words of wisdom from Tom and his staff, as well as superb mechanic Matt Fairbrass, the staff of United Propellers, and James Osler, who discussed marine adhesives. One of the morning’s highlights was the appearance of RITA a wondrous 50 foot Minett, dating from 1914. Built by Reets Boat Works, in Mayfield New York, this stunning racer comes equipped with a 350  hp Mercury Scorpion engine. We have been instructed by the owner to reduce the price of this completely restored 38 ft. We have just received some interesting, updated information on the Fairliner Torpedo we featured earlier this week. Fairliner was a division of Western Boat Building Co., founded by one of the South Slav immigrants, my grandfather. Dair is credited in high speed naval architecture classes as being the first to design the chine so that the lowest point of the chine was at the stern.
Now I am not sure than any of the Torpedoes has the bottom correct after all these years of sanding and reworking.
Many thanks to Kerry Price for forwarding the video of this year’s Antique and Classic Boat Show (Texas). Port Carling Boats BlogWelcome to the Port Carling Boats siteWelcome to the Port Carling Boats website!
This environmentally friendly watercraft offers great cruising capacity at a very reasonable price.
Peter started building this twenty-eight foot boat in 1997 and finished it in 2003 when he took the boat to Florida twice, taking three awards. Every detail of Cash Injection is meticulously reviewed and executed with precision, in keeping with the Ditchburn boats of the 1930s. Although Cash Injection has seating similar to a triple cockpit, a sunshade cover and a mother in-laws seat, she runs like a missile. The Ditchburn brothers would be very pleased to see both the work and the client-first focus of Peter Breen and his team. It should be noted that Peter Breen’s restoration work encompasses all of the original boat builders in Muskoka, including Minett Shields, Greavette, Garwood, JJ Taylor, Clive Brown, Duke, Sea Bird and numerous famous US builders.
This classic Century Resorter, a 1948 twenty footer, shows beautifully in the photos forwarded to us. The boat offers a clean interior and comes complete with a single axle trailer in excellent condition. This rare Richardson launch underwent extensive refurbishing in 2010 by Barron’s Custom Boats in Midland, Ontario. Equipment included: hand made spoon oars to fit, 2 custom upholstery cushions, automatic bilge pump, solar battery charger, tarpaulin cover. We have been instructed by Berg Boats to significantly reduce the prices of four of their beautifully constructed, reproduction vintage vessels.


This Classic Dodge runabout, (double planked hull) was restored from 1991 to 1999 and has rarely been used since that time. This beautiful, hard to find triple cockpit runabout is in excellent condition, having undergone major restorative work in 2000, including a new 5200 bottom and a new GM 350 V8 engine.
LONDON (13 February 2014) – In what has quickly become one of Europe’s leading collector car auctions, RM’s biennial Monaco sale will feature one of the most significant motor boats to be offered to the market in recent years.
Augustin Sabatie-Garat, Car Specialist, RM Auctions, says: “Aside from its reputation as a seller of some of the world’s finest collector cars, RM has also built a reputation for offering some very fine hand-selected boats to the market. VIA, which is also known by its hull number, number 62, is powered by its original pair of Chris-Craft MCL, inline six-cylinder engines, with each engine capable of producing 175 horsepower; therefore providing exceptional performance to this magnificent machine.
This very rare Beck Boat Works(Thunder Bay Ontario) three step hydroplane is a real collector’s item. We have been instructed to reduce the price of this beautiful vessel by $205,000 to $895,000! Wooden boats of all sizes and styles were well represented at this event; the docks were entirely filled! Consider, too, that some of these boats date back almost to the time of their first inauguration.

The Caravan embodies a long tradition of traveling theatrical productions with their combination of innovative stylistic staging, imaginative music and dance, and colorful entertaining themes. Lawrence River in upstate New York, the ABM features a collection of over 300 antique and classic boats, among thousands of recreational boating artifacts.
Stan recently completed a brand new long deck launch, which is featured in a newly released DVD, Boat Builder.
This beautiful long deck, displacement hull launch will surely turn heads, when completed,  wherever she goes. Complete with a triple layer West System bottom, the racer features a forward rumble seat and a spacious rear cockpit. The comments come from Allen Petrich Jr., whose father actually built these beautiful boats. My father did not feel competent to design a full pleasure boat line and had noticed the bottom of the hull of one of Dair’s air-sea rescue boats and contacted him for the job of designing the line, though, one naval architect told me, he is fairly sure that my father worked with Dair on construction techniques.
My father had come to the same conclusion with the design of his first production boat, a 16′ tuna tender runabout. We hope the site will satisfy your love of wooden boats, cottaging and the holiday lifestyle. Breen, who built and owns Cash Injection, is considered by many to be the finest boat builder in North America, if not the world. Hundreds of hours of painstaking detail work are apparent, from the varnished, mirror-like finish on both the exterior and the interior hull, to the bilge and the engine compartment.
She’s in very original condition, with newly refinished stain and varnish, including the original hardware. Book matched deck planking and many customized features add to this beautiful boat’s lustre, as does vintage re-done chrome.
One of the wooden boating world’s most prestigious water-craft, a Riva belonging to the late Prince Ranier of Monaco, will be put on the auction block this coming May.
The immensely desirable 1958 Riva Tritone, known as VIA, was originally ordered new by His Majesty Prince Rainier of Monaco and his famous wife, Princess Grace Kelly, for their personal use, and the vessel is one of only 26 boats built by Riva that year. Several very important Rivas have passed through our hands, along with the spectacular Ferrari-powered hydroplane, the ARNO XI, which we sold at the last Monaco sale in 2012. This vessel, acquired by the current owner in 2003, has had only three owners from new, and it boasts a recent ground-up restoration by the specialists at Woodcraft, in Amsterdam.
The bottom is mahogany ply, sides are cold molded cedar and decks are red cedar over mahogany ply coverboards. This charming eighteen footer was built in 1996 by Berg Boats, out of Bellingham, Washington.
It came with a Chrysler Crown, but the owner modified it by installing a Scripps 152 engine and a rear wind screen.
Designed in 1905 by the famous builder of wooden boats, the skiff is 11.5 ft in length, with a four foot beam.


The shows are all original productions expressing the issues and concerns of people inhabiting the environment of the 21st century. The Museum is home to the world’s largest runabout of its kind and a 112-year old gilded-age two-story houseboat. Many companies attempted to do so but few became as successful, Fairliner became the largest builder of pleasure boats (up to 44′) on the Pacifc Coast of the US following the war until my father had a heart attack as Fairliner was converting to fiberglass. He and Dair were both convinced that was the way to go while all the other designers, Crouch, etc., would bring the chine up. His vast experience in the restoration of Ditchburn boats has directly influenced the production of Cash Injection.
The John Hacker inspired hull design handles with ease and precision in turns and when wide open. This wonderful Riva, VIA, is a unique piece of Monaco’s cultural history, and it is the ultimate privilege to be able to bring this beautiful boat back to its original home. With such an outstanding restoration already conducted, the boat is a perfect and unique opportunity for any collector looking to obtain a historically significant Riva in perfect, ready-to-go condition (Estimate: €350,000–€500,000, without reserve). The Atkins Flyer is powered by a 12 cylinder, 1970’s, 275 hp Jaguar engine, (offering 60 mph!) An additional engine is available. The Gar Wood was used in the Thousand Islands area for four years, then put into covered storage in 1939, where it sat for 35 or more years!
This four cylinder motor boasts twin carburetors, and a magneto ignition, built by Fairbanks Morris of England. The vintage appearance is deceptive as she feels like a much newer vessel as she has had continuous upgrades to the electrical system, appliances, air conditioning, and over all upkeep has been topnotch.
In 2015, the ABM will host the 51st annual Antique Boat Show and Auction, the longest running such show in North America. Tony’s grandfather, as John knows, worked with the Skansie brothers, other South Slav immigrants. The versions used by the OSS were the fastest boats of the war and one 63′ was timed by the OSS as averaging over 50 knots for three hours in the open ocean of the South Pacific on a rescue mission.
The Century is powered by a 6 cylinder flat head engine, (6 volt system), new fuel lines and filter.
The “Rockin Strawberry Motorcycle Gathering proves that some people just have too much time on their hands!
It would be particularly satisfying if VIA could return to Monaco on a permanent basis, but wherever it goes, the boat is surely the ultimate prize for any Riva enthusiast”. Let’s hope that this Pettersson salon vessel will be afloat in Muskoka as soon as possible!
They were all important in the development of the Puget Sound purse seine fishing boat design, which went on to conquer the world of fishing for pelagic schooling fish, such as the salmon, sardine and tuna, with the Martinac 240′ tuna seiners being one of the ultimate developments.
All the hardware on the boat is sand-cast with bronze, then polished and chromed in the same manner that the Ditchburn brothers employed. The owner has a complete set of records on this runabout from the time of purchase to the present. In fact, one such Western Boat built seiner, the Western Explorer, was purchased by Newfoundland Fisheries about 1939. Any slight radiusing of the chine or concavity of the bottom from sanding or other work will cause a problem.
At the maneuver I mentioned at fast turn the bow should come down and plow a bit, the boat will slow a lot and you should quickly be facing 180 degrees in the opposite direction with the boat getting fast on plane.
The Century is powered by a 6 cylinder Hercules engine (6 volt) with new fuel lines – in reasonable condition.
It was commandeered by the British Admiralty within a year or so of purchase and taken to the UK for coastal patrol duties. The sale of the Gar Wood includes a new galvanized trailer, Sunbrella tan cover, original engine manual and brochure.
