Uncle Joe

(Beecher IL)

1958 14' Mohawk.

She has a molded plywood hull.

The boat has been in the family since new and always garage kept.

My Great Uncle Joe purchased the boat from Milo Craft in Chicago.

I have been Working on the restoration for the past three years and hope to finish soon as I plan to take her to a few boat shows this year.

Did your Uncle Joe have a boat named Shirley that would have raced in 1952-54 in Green Lake Wi. and Ottawa Il.?

I have a few boat trophies from a Uher.

Same boat
by: John Gerry

I own a 1960 Mohawk same construction, I purchased it in Indiana.

It wasw originally from Ohio where it resided fron 1962 until June of 09.

I attempted to contact the previous owner but he did not reply.

The boat is now in in Citrus County Fl.

Any info you can provide regarding the history of this boat would be greatly appreciated.

If you like I can send pictures of this boat.


A Mohawk, ay?
by: Victoria

I've seen nearly this same boat one or two other places online, and the interior looks exactly like the mohawk I just bought.

Thing is, mine is real pretty cedar strip over the molded ply instead of painted like yours and the rest I've seen.

Do you know anything about this company?

What kind of engine did yours come with?
