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 fashioned way) and re-fastened in 2014-15. New toilet and flooring in the head, 2019.”

St.  Lawrence Skiff; 16 ft, 1980s (below

The skiff is a 16′ St. Lawrence model, built by Tendercraft in the 1980’s. It is the same model that was also built for the Canadian film producer – Robert Lantos. The original skiff owner lived on Treasure Island near Kingston. The current (next) owner lived in Toronto and was using it to access the islands in Lake Ontario. An unplanned sudden move to Saskatchewan has left the skiff homeless.

It is Carvel construction with a white fibreglass covering, which is in decent condition. No hull planking needs to be replaced. The ends of both small decks are worn away and need to be replaced. A small piece of the outer trim, of one the gunwhales – also needs to be replaced.  A sanding and a couple of coats of varnish are needed, but otherwise, the boat is in good, decent, restorable condition.

The asking price is $1050 or best offer.

Two recently sold, spectacular “classic” boats.

August 10, 2020 in Uncategorized

Congratulations to the seller ad purchaser  of these two unique, very different “classic” boats. The first is an extraordinary, hard top launch, custom built by Peter Breen.
This boat gives new meaning to the word “spectacular.” See the description below.

Breen Fast Limousine, 29 ft., 2009

Dolly Durkin Jr. is a 2009 29′ Breen Fast Limousine that took 5000 hours to complete. Based off a very successful Gold-Cup John Hacker-designed race boat hull of the 1920’s, and powered with a 496 cubic inch Mercruiser V-8 , this boat provides a stunning ride at all speeds. Hull is solid mahogany on white oak framework, sealed inside and out, to create a maintenance-free wooden boat experience. Decks are 5/8″ thick mahogany strips, book-matched out from the centre king plank. The cockpit is enclosed with a hard-top made of cove and bead strips incorporating two gull wing hatches for easy entry. Six model T roll-up windows provide shelter in unfavourable weather, and a cool, airy ride in nice weather. Main cockpit holds 4-5 comfortably and the forward “mother-in-law” cockpit holds an additional two passengers. All hardware is sand-casted bronze, chrome-plated. Mechanical drag-link steering with outboard rudder assembly provides sports car maneuverability and feel. This boat was built to be a sales tool for Peter Breen Antique & Classic Boat Co. Ltd, and attended shows across North America including Tavares – Florida, Houston – Texas, Bay Harbour – Michigan, and Brainerd – Minnesota where she won awards at each show. After a decade of showcasing our work, we are looking to find a new home for this unique and truly labour intensive creation. Construction details can be seen at www.breenboats.com.

Custom Gentleman’s Racer: (above)

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  $35,000.00 Canadian, (about $26,250 USD at current exchange rates). 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.

Original Price: $65,000.  New price, (Sept 2019) $35,000 CDN
WOW!
