LakeCraft cedar-strip runabout: 16 ft, 1955
Notes from the owner:
“The LakeCraft is a great “Go to town boat”. LakeCrafts were built in Bracebridge in the heyday. Rare to find one now. Know of one other. Found this one by the side of the road. The sale includes a 1957, 35 hp. Johnson found in a barn and restored by Stevenson. Mint shifter. I have the mounts for the split windshield and glass template. Needs the back seat done, but a very sound boat and a heck of a lot of fun.”
