“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.

Antique, wood, rowing/sailing dory in very good condition. She is 16 feet long and has a beam of 4 feet 6 inches with a mahogany floor. She is christened ‘TOAD’. She has a double set of oars for rowing by two “sailors”, and she has a mast with a light brown mainsail for sailing. Trailer is included. The rudder and tiller are missing, but a new one can easily be made by someone handily adroit using mahogany or teak wood: The stern brackets for the rudder are already attached on the stern – see the last picture included.
(Editors Note. The beautiful lines on this dory seem very similar to the famous and versatile Whitehall design)

This is an exceptional Coronado. The Century (boat and motor) underwent a top-to-bottom restoration in 2004 with Dwight Boyd, of Clarion Boats. The current owner paid $85,000 for the Century at that time. The Corondo has been used very conservatively since then, as the photos reveal. The boat is in excellent condition
Please call or email for an appointment to view this exceptional Century.

Comes complete with cover, oars and trailer. (The boat weighs about 250 lbs). The boat would take a small outboard motor. This boat would make a unique tender or classic fishing boat.

The results of our two question survey.
We recently sent out a brief survey, asking our subscribers and viewers if they would be interested in seeing posts and ads for antique and classic autos. We’re VERY grateful for those who responded, as the results help to chart the future of Port Carling Boats.
The survey results are below:
Include up to 50% of posts to classic cars: 44% of our respondents supported this option
Include up to 25% of posts to classic cars: 33% of respondents support this option
Include classic cars but no per cent indicated: 14% of respondents support this option
Do not market or represent classic/antique cars on the website: 9 % support this option.
Based on these results, we will likely proceed in the future with 20% to 25% of our posts and ads devoted to vintage autos, at least initially.
We appreciate the support of our viewers, and will do our best to keep everyone “on board.”
Thanks again to those who participated.
This boat has been boat house stored for over twenty-five years and was professionally restored approximately seven years ago. The Shepherd was owned by Don Coates, the late former mayor of Bracebridge, Ontario. It is currently in excellent condition, priced to sell.
