Express Cruiser ("Truscan"?)

by Jim Barber
(Kingwood, Texas)

Hello,

I am trying to identify the manufacturer of an wood express cruiser my father owned in the 1950's.

Part of the name of the builder was "Truscan" I believe and it was manufactured in Canada.

My father's boat was 24' and I have attached a photo of the boat.

If anyone has some history of this boat manufacturer, I would be very grateful to hear back.

Thank you,

Jim Barber

Truscott 24 foot built in 1948

I also agree that it looks like a Truscott from 1948.

Google Truscott Express Cruiser and you should be able to get some good advertisement photos, etc. from the web to compare to.

That boat looks to be a Truscott built in St Joseph Michigan.
