A Peterborough Handiboy is resurrected by a very competent “amateur’ restorer.

January 12, 2017 in Uncategorized

Our hearty congratulations to Ken Robinson of Owen Sound, who recently completed a total restoration of the Peterborough Handiboy shown in the photos below.  Ken really worked miracles with the boat,  which was featured partially completed on our website this past year. Ken is now on the hunt for period-correct hardware to complete the Peterborough. This boat was his first restoration. We hope that  Ken’s success will inspire other wooden boat devotees to take the plunge and get their hands covered with sawdust and varnish!

Ken took a very tired “Handiboy” from this….Handiboy-1
to this…
Handiboy 2
