Enjoy this landmark video of an historic American boat company, well ahead of its time, even in the last century. For the sake of the environment, the Elco approach to power is a most welcome advancement.

It’s not every day that we’re privileged to behold the spectacle of a 103 year old, fifty foot cabin cruiser rise like a phoenix from a restorer’s shop. Yet that’s what happened today on Lake Muskoka, to “Rita”, an iconic 1914 Minett Day Cruiser. All 17,000 pounds of her were carried on a massive flat bed trailer, transported to Gravenhurst Bay, then hoisted skyward on a huge crane for a re-crhistening in Lake Muskoka. Rita has spent over two years in Tom Adam’s Port Carling Boat shop, where she received a completely new bottom and transom. This is no small feat in a fifty foot vessel. Rita’s massive 200 horse-power, 2500 pound, six cylinder Sterling engine was also completely rebuilt by Matt Fairbrass. Matt, Tom Adams and his staff have every right to feel proud of the results of their hard work. They (and Rita’s owner) have saved this unique piece of nautical history for future generations to enjoy. Hats off to you all.! (Enjoy the photo and video below)

Incidentally, the exceptionally warm Ontario fall has extended the boating season significantly. Not only that, but the forested areas of Muskoka have been hanging on to their beautiful fall colours. Although […]
