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.

Congratulations to the sellers and buyers of the two “woodies” above and below: a classic Greavette sedan and a Stan Hunter built reproduction Billy Johnson runabout. We hope that the new owners will enjoy years of great boating with their new acquisitions.
The 24 ft, 1949  Greavette Sheerliner, pictured above and below, was completedly restored with a 5200 bottom and a new 350 hp V8 engine. The Greavette was listed at $99,000

Stan Hunter, builder of the 16 foot, 2007 Billy Johnson designed runabout pictured below,  hand-crafted the runabout with a cedar hull and white oak frames. The “Gerry .D” is powered by a quiet 40 hp four stroke Yamaha engine. The boat was listed at $20,000.  (Photo below)

A plea for help from the individual who tried to contact the owner of the Whitehall skiff pictured below. Somehow your email inquiry disappeared into cyberspace.  Please contact the owner again. The link to his website is here.  Ad number pb865
