My boat, my picture- why on your site?
by: Anonymous

This is my boat, restored by me. No one on this site has ever seen it.

It has been listed on the ACBS website as Olderthanus since 1996- photographed at Clear Lake Iowa.

Happy Days

My dad had one of these for years on Lake Sunapee.

Loved this boat!

The dummy sold it and it has been under wraps for years and sadly must be in poor shape at this point.

Port holes in front
by: Anonymous

What size were the port holes on this boat?

9 inches, 10 inches, or smaller?

Restoring the same boat!

Great Job!

My grandfather owned one of these boats for years!

He kept it on the St. Clair River in Michigan where we spent our summers growing up!

I have so many,many happy memories on this boat.

What I wouldn't give to see one again.

I've seen a few on the internet but I've never come upon a fully restored one.

So glad you posted pictures!

Hi Philippe,

The easiest way to add to your original post is for you to email everything to me at mike@diy-wood-boat.com and I can add it for you and resize photos etc, etc.

I'm looking forward to seeing everything.

Nice boat
by: Jim

Give serious thought to entering her in classic boat shows.

You might sail away with a blue ribbon!

Very nice looking C.Craft.

Absolutely Awesome
by: David Chaplin

That is one beautiful boat.

I saw one last week near Chicago, I think it is past saving.

This looks great and seaworthy.

The white finish is tops.
