Antique watercraft rescues disabled fibreglass runabout!

October 20, 2017 in Uncategorized

In a refreshing turn of events, an antique steamboat rescues a contemporary fibreglass runabout on one of the Muskoka lakes. So there, you inboard-outboards!   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 somewhat past peak viewing time, canopy beauty still abounds in the fresh autumn air and lakes of the region. It’s not too late to visit Muskoka.
Finally,  a word of warning to our clients. The Internet is a prime target for scammers. Please be aware of any messages received from a so-called Mr. Fischer Manuel. Enough said.

Billy Johnson Reproduction
16 ft. 2007

This Billy Johnson designed runabout was  built by master craftsman Stan Hunter in 2007. This sixteen foot beauty is hand crafted with a cedar hull, white oak frames and a mahogany deck. The “Gerry D”, one of five boats of this model built by  Stan over a decade, is powered by a quiet, 40 hp (2007) four stroke engine with low hours. The installed twelve gallon gas tank provides many hours of carefree boating. The runabout has recently been refurbished with new paint and varnish, along with minor woodwork repairs. Always stored under cover,  both boat and motor are in excellent condition. The original price of this boat was $24,000, without the engine. A trailer at additional cost may be available with the runabout.
