A Crandall designed hydroplane from the 1930s is re-created in Honey Harbour, Ontario

August 14, 2017 in Uncategorized

The McCullough brothers of Honey Harbour Ontario, already boasting a number of restorations to their credit, have been working over two years to re-create a hydroplane created by renowned designer Bruce Crandall in the 1930s. The original pattern has been lengthened to 19 feet. Originally powered by a four cylinder flathead engine, the enhanced version of the design will be propelled by a 350 Magnum engine, pushing this stepped hull racer far past its forbearer’s speed record. Mike and Bill have reached a stage in the construction where they can begin applying the cedar rivet-fastened skin to the frame.

August 2, 2017 in Uncategorized


Munro Torpedo: 15 ft: (1949-1954)
Munro claimed the Torpedo was the first fibreglass boat made in Canada.  (He

This boat has been in my family since the early sixties. It was out back at

birthday present. Restorative work has been undertaken on the Torpedo. The transom, transom knees, plywood floor, steering cables and hull deck joint are all new.
My old  “hot rod” lives currently on the big waters of Lake Huron, and
needs a new family of kids on a smaller lake
(Editor’s note: The sale includes the 35 hp Merc. engine, with low hours, which will push the Torpedo to 30 mph. Also included in the sale is a single axle trailer and two steel Mercury fuel tanks with original finish.)
