Hutchinson long deck launch: 28 ft, 1920

Notes from the owner:
“The Queen” was built in Alexandria Bay , New York, in 1920. She is 28 ft in length, with a 6 ft. beam and draft of 2 ft. Boat and trailer together weigh about 6,000 pounds. The Queen is powered by a 4 cylinder, 63 h.p. Kermath gas engine, in excellent condition. She was at one time used by priests for transportation to an island retreat near Clayton, New York, and also for a period of time as a guide boat. Her deck was cropped off and steering was a stick!
She was once owned by Kenneth Barager of Fairport New York, and then was purchased by one of the founders of the ACBS- Walter Weber. Walter had some work done on her and she was in dry dock for a time. It was then we purchased The Queen and a total restoration was done, as we call it…a backyard restoration. We have had her for 20 years”. She has a convertible top, mahogany interior and dyed cow hide upholstery, white cedar hull and mahogany decks. A Dilly trailer is included.”(Editor’s note: at the time of the current owner’s purchase, the boat underwent a full hull up restoration, with Elco Boat Works renewing the hull, and the current owner, a semi professional restorer, replaced the sides and deck, and built the seats, cabinetry, with plans provided by the Antique Boat Museum in Clayton New York. This past summer, the hull was re-caulked and repainted. Boat motor and trailer are all in excellent condition.

Our newest listing: a MAGNIFICENT McNeil and Norris long deck launch; 36 ft, 1922
pb649-6
Notes from the owner:
This is a completely restored 1922 launch built by McNeil & Norris in Bala Ontario. The restoration of this boat was completed in the summer of 2010. Ian Marr who has had years of experience working on Muskoka boats and has worked for most of the Muskoka restorers was one of the principles in the restoration. I had the hull gone over in the summer of 2014, some minor repairs done and the hull re-caulked with 3M 5200 so that the boat could be placed directly in the water. The 6 cylinder Gray Marine engine has been completely restored. Also included in the sale is a custom built triple axle trailer with surge brakes. The boat was put in storage on a custom 3 axle trailer in 2011. All gas was drained from the fuel tank and carburetor so that a restart would require minimal effort. I have a photo album of the restoration showing all the new wood installed. This boat will be sold as is where is as the logistics and risk of launching, retrieval and re-pickling would be prohibitive and would be on the prospective purchaser. I do have pictures and some video on the launch underway and it is typical of a displacement launch of this size.

I have historical pictures of Pleasant View when it was owned by McNeil & Norris in Bala shortly after it was built. I also have pictures and other historical data from it’s long service with the Pleasantview Lodge on Mortimore’s Point.
During the restoration I kept an album of the restoration, clearly showing the work done. Photos can forwarded to serious parties.
Price: $199,900. For contact information, please see ad number pb649 on the antique/classic wood boats page, or click on the linkpb649
