Dippy lovers take note: an “Uncle Sam” model is available.

August 26, 2017 in Uncategorized

It has been said that the owners of Disappearing Propeller Boats have more fun than any other boating group. These folks, usually members of the Dispro Owners Association, have even braved the volatile waters of Georgian Bay on several of their “misery tours”.
Dispros were a staple of the waters of Ontario and beyond for many decades. The fact that many are still operational speaks well of their durability and charm.
Our website currently offers an Uncle Sam model Dispro, with a rebuilt hull, engine and propeller device. Please see the information below…

Beautiful weather, boats and autos crown the ACBS Gravenhurst Boat Show

July 12, 2017 in Uncategorized

This year’s July 8th, 2017 vintage boat and auto show, sponsored by the Toronto Chapter ACBS, was a well attended celebration of our automotive and marine history. Admission to the show was free this year, in honour of Canada’s 150th birthday. Despite an overcast start to the day, (with some areas experiencing power outages) the sky cleared and the crowds arrived! Congratulations to all involved for a very successful show. Enjoy the photos below and stay tuned for the upcoming video.

This mini tug was surely the cutest boat at the Show.

A beautifullly maintained/restored Duke Playmate

Very rare 1940s Chris-Craft with cuddy

 

“Hers” is a a very welcome repeat Chris-Craft visitor at the Show

“Slightly Altered” is a custom Gentleman’s Racer currently for sale on the Port Carling Boats website. Price: $45,000

This very attractrive electric boat bodes well for future more environmentally friendly boating.

The Canadian Electric Boat Co. strikes again!

Best to be wearing sunglasses when viewing this very striking “fibreglassic”.

Unusual and attriactive covering boards on this Gentleman’s Racer

No Gravenhurst Boat Show is complete without the steamship Segwun on the scene.

The vehicles at this year’s show were all “Concours D’Elegance” automobiles.

Several Amphicars made their way to to the Show this year.

The classic lines of these autos have a class, grace and beauty all their own.

This well maintained Chris-Craft Sea Skiff Cuddy is also for sale on the Port Carling Boats website..$15,900

A gorgeous Chris-Craft triple cockpit.
