Disappearing Propeller Boats: the 100th Anniversary Celebration
Imagine some 80 “Dispros” gathered together in Port Carling, Muskoka to celebrate 100 years of existence. Consider, too, that some of these boats date back almost to the time of their first inauguration. That’s amazing longevity for a wooden boat.
Enjoy the video of the celebration below.

More than 80 Dispros arrived in Port Carling last Saturday

For those enthusiasts devoted to the Disappearing propeller Boat, last Saturday’s 100th anniversary Dispro celebration in Port Carling, Ontario was a feast for the senses. It is likely the only time…past, present or future, that some eighty Dippies will be gathered at the same location. With owners dressed in period costumes, the docks seemed to step back in time. (Stay tuned for the Dippy video). In the meantime, enjoy the photos below. ALL HAIL THE DIPPY!
