A winter visit to three Muskoka boat shops: photos and a video

January 10, 2017 in Uncategorized

There’s lots of activity in Muskoka boat shops this winter…everything from a Dodge Water Car to a Stancraft “Beaver Tail”. The photos and video below tell the story
dscn0486Mike is working on a 26 foot Chris-Craft Special: 27 ft. late 1920s  (above
Also in Mike’s shop is a 22 ft Greavette, 1958…awaiting a new bottom.
Meanwhile,  the historic Segwun and her much younger sister WInonah II, wait out the winter in Lake Muskoka ice


“Barracuda” above. is a 26 ft, 1929 Dodge Water Car


The Water Car’s engine is the original DOdge-Curtis 8 cylinder engine



Tim Butson’s shop includes a Duke runabout, (above) designed to Chris-Craft specs.


An elegant Butson long deck launch, begun late 2014,  awaits some finishing touches.
