Esco cabin cruiser; 35 ft., 1949

Boat Description
“Pudgie was built in Essex, Ontario, by James Whitson and his crew at the Esco Boat Co. I am the third owner of this well cared for boat. She turns heads every where we go. She is a custom boat, with her own Good looks. Something different!! Many interesting details in her construction. Simple and roomy, down below. This boat has seen many ACBS shows in the area and gets used regularly. I have owned and enjoyed “Pudgie” for 12 yrs, including a 2 week Honeymoon, among the Erie Islands of western Lake Erie, 2015.
The Chrysler Marine 383, engine was installed new in 1963. The heads were done in 2003, new exhaust manifolds, Petronix ignition, 2015. The engine has had meticulous care. She purrs like a kitten. The windshield was completely rebuilt and the bottom re-caulked ( with cotton, the old fashion way) and re-fastened in 2014-15. New toilet and flooring in the head, 2019.”

Gentleman’s Racer “Bug Bite” hits the water!

September 11, 2019 in Uncategorized

Congratulations to master builder Kevin Fitzke of Minnesota, USA,  on the creation of his Gentleman’s Racer “Bug Bite.” We have featured Kevin’s work in an earlier post when the boat was under construction in his shop. Since then, Kevin has launched Bug Bite successfully.  Enjoy the photos, his comments and the brief video  below.

Additional notes from Kevin:
“Bugbite is a little under 17′ in length and is 5′ on the beam. It’s has a pretty dramatic chamfer on the chines and step which create an illusion of a small free-board. As for speed, I’m not entirely sure how fast this boat will be. From what I’ve been able to find in the old Motor Boating magazines and such is I believe this boat broke the speed record at 69 mph in 1940. However, it’s a little confusing if it was this actual design or if it was a early Ventnor three-pointer design. Either way I’m not looking to try to break any speed records, I just think it’s got some great lines to the design and I’ll have plenty of fun at cruising speed.

Gentleman’s Racer: 22 ft. 2012

There’s no excuse for this modern classic having to wait  any longer for a new home, especially at this dramatically reduced price! Please see notes from the owner below.

Custom Reproduction Gentleman’s Racer, 22 ft, 2012

“This is a newly launched Reproduction Gentleman’s Racer. She is epoxy built double ply bottom… never needs soaking up. She is all mahogany and white oak construction. Her sides are a royal blue. The varnished decks are all book matched planking over 1/4”ply  and the cockpit is nautolex. This vessel is complimented by her custom made steering wheel,shifter,deck scoops, cut-water, stainless fuel tank, and mirror stainless hatch chrome. Retro white gauges with chrome bezels. The vintage chrome was redone. She has hydraulic steering and 3” stainless exhaust. This vessel is powered by a 350 bored 30 over and is capable of 47 mph. She has a custom made 12.5x13V Acme prop and HF7 Paragon hydraulic transmission. A show winner!  “Slightly Altered” has a tandem axle trailer with brakes, new tires and rollers. She does not have any issues with prop torque. Originally priced at $65,000 I am asking  $45,000.00 Canadian. Would look at close offers.
Note: The owner has modified the boat since the original description was provided. Details below:
We stripped the boat of all hardware and refinished her.
Decks and hull were all water sanded The deck was sprayed with 2k Urethane for better UV protection and hull was sprayed with two part urethane Plum Crazy Purple pearl with Sassy Grass Green waterline with ghost skulls on aft sides and 2 coats of clear Urethane. “Slightly Altered” showed well in Gravenhurst last summer. I also built a windshield with green glass. The motor has had a Holley 600 CFM performance carb. and a Wiend 8016 Stealth Aluminum High rise Intake installed as well.”

New listing: a Greavette Dispro, 18 ft., 1952.

September 6, 2019 in Uncategorized

Greavette Disappearing Propeller Boat; 18 ft., 1952

This “Dippy” was number seven built in 1952 by Greavette. It is powered by a Coventry/Victor engine and includes the  original device, which allows the drive shaft and propeller to be retracted into the hull of the boat. This allows the Dippy to be beached virtually anywhere. The engine and device were both restored by Paul Doddington. This gorgeous mahogany boat was lovingly restored by  Bert Trollope. The sale includes a  tarp, cushions and a singe axle trailer.

Additional; notes from the vendor below: (Sept/2019)

“In terms of the restoration, it was completed in 2000.  The boat has not been in the water for a few years because my father has been in declining health.  My father documented the restoration quite thoroughly and we have a photo album that illustrates the restoration process.”

PRICE:  $6,000 CDN.   For further details and contact information, please click on the link.  Ad number pb884
