Our newest listing: a Greavette Disappearing Propeller Boat (Dippy)

October 17, 2020 in Uncategorized

 

Greavette Disappearing Propeller Boat (Dippy): 1964 (#3)

“Hope” is in very good operating condition. Both the Dippy boat and Coventry Victor engine have been “top to bottom”  rebuilt/refurbished and both are running very well. (Sept 2020) Two new coats of exterior varnish were applied this past July. A new bilge pump and mini pump at the bow end were installed in Aug. 2020 (suggestion of Ian Dickson,(Dispro expert!) for all Dispros.
The trailer, with Bearing Buddies, is in very serviceable condition. Custom clips hold the cover in place during transport. The cover has been repaired/protected and is quite serviceable. “Hope” comes with two beautiful spoon-blade oars.
(Everything works!) In my opinion,this Greavette offers excellent value for the price. If it weren’t for a sudden, catastrophic illness,
there’s no way I would sell this beautiful Dippy  Rob A.

Please see notes from the owner below.
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.

A visit to Curt Hillman’s boat shop, Spring 2020

May 10, 2020 in Uncategorized

“This too shall pass.” We look forward to the days ahead when we can stop worrying about our health and return to some form of normalcy.  In the meantime, re-activate your vintage boating adrenaline by checking in on Curtis Hillman’s latest projects.

Additional notes from the owner of the Greavette pictured above and in the video:
“The boat is a Greavette triple cockpit Roamer. It is a Dart designed boat (with a few minor changes) built on license by Greavette in 1934. The Dart Boat Co. began production during the mid 1920’s in Toledo, Ohio and went out of business in 1931, due to the Great Depression. About 10 years ago, Dart Boat began production again in Toledo, not far from the original sight. Also, the 4 cylinder Buchanan engine is not the original. It is a 1956.”
WARNING:: A number of fraud attempts have recently been made on Port Carling Boats clients. If you receive a full offer to purchase your boat, sight unseen, especially if additional funds are forwarded to cover transportation costs, a scammer is attempting to defraud you. Some of these attempts include the Port Carling Boats name in subject headings. Beware of fractured English and the name Anthony in these emails.
