The Greavette has been stored at Campbell’s landing marine in Muskoka for 4 years. Our boat house was damaged by ice and now has been taken down. She has no home now. I am the second owner. the boat had some major work done in 1989, including a new stem, new frames and all new planks to the engine box ($8,500 invsted). The engine work was done at Beaumaris Marine in the 1990s. $4,000 was spent on the motor. (Ed. note: the engine is a 185 hp., 8 cylinder Ford Interceptor.)
The Greavette needs new varnish. having been stored in a shed. Some wood work is needed:: splash rails and new chines. We would like the boat to remain in Muskoka. She has been there her entire life.
