Unique 38 foot Ditchburn, 1926, arrives at Mike Windsor’s Gravenhurst, Ontario facility for a (mainly) cosmetic make-over
“Blythewood”, a magnificent sedan cruiser, originally built for Sam McLaughlin, (founder of General Motors) is being treated to a make-over. Included in the project will be a new hull plank, and refurbishing of the cruiser’s cover boards. As well, she will be re-powered with a larger Kermath engine. “Blythewood” was originally constructed of vermilion wood, a tropical hardwood almost twice the weight of mahogany, somewhat similar to teak. The video below tells the story.
