A visit to Curt Hillman’s boat shop, Spring 2020

“This too shall pass.” We look forward to the days ahead when we can stop worrying about our health and return to some form of normalcy. In the meantime, re-activate your vintage boating adrenaline by checking in on Curtis Hillman’s latest projects.
Additional notes from the owner of the Greavette pictured above and in the video:
“The boat is a Greavette triple cockpit Roamer. It is a Dart designed boat (with a few minor changes) built on license by Greavette in 1934. The Dart Boat Co. began production during the mid 1920’s in Toledo, Ohio and went out of business in 1931, due to the Great Depression. About 10 years ago, Dart Boat began production again in Toledo, not far from the original sight. Also, the 4 cylinder Buchanan engine is not the original. It is a 1956.”
WARNING:: A number of fraud attempts have recently been made on Port Carling Boats clients. If you receive a full offer to purchase your boat, sight unseen, especially if additional funds are forwarded to cover transportation costs, a scammer is attempting to defraud you. Some of these attempts include the Port Carling Boats name in subject headings. Beware of fractured English and the name Anthony in these emails.
