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.     Ad number pb884
