Twenty volunteers bring a badly damaged “Dippy” back to life.

June 24, 2018 in Uncategorized

Most Wednesday mornings in Gravenhurst, Ontario, volunteers gather at the Muskoka Boat Works to hone their craftsmanship and restore wooden boats! One of the group’s current projects, a 1929 Lindsay built Disappearing Propeller Boat, has been under restoration for a three year period. Close to completion now, its launch will no doubt generate considerable excitement and satisfaction.
Many thanks to our roving reporter, Ray Richards (with one “s”), for covering this story. Enjoy the video below.
