There’s lots of activity in Muskoka boat shops this winter…everything from a Dodge Water Car to a Stancraft “Beaver Tail”. The photos and video below tell the story

Also in Mike’s shop is a 22 ft Greavette, 1958…awaiting a new bottom.
Meanwhile, the historic Segwun and her much younger sister WInonah II, wait out the winter in Lake Muskoka ice
“Barracuda” above. is a 26 ft, 1929 Dodge Water Car
The Water Car’s engine is the original DOdge-Curtis 8 cylinder engine
Tim Butson’s shop includes a Duke runabout, (above) designed to Chris-Craft specs.
An elegant Butson long deck launch, begun late 2014, awaits some finishing touches.
