The boat was found in fragments on a property near Gananoque on the St. Lawrence River. It was used as a family boat from 1911 to 1946 for the Mabee family from Gan to their cottage on Tidds Island. In 1946 it was no longer viable and was bought by a scrapper for the engine and hardware. The boat remained in the scrapper’s yards and fell apart over the years. The hull sides, stern and some deck boards as well as the engine beds and stringers were found. The parts were stretched over a frame based on Gilbert line drawings. All wood parts were replaced. The hardware was sourced or machined out of bronze in my workshop. The hull was a complete reconstruction in phases over 2005-2018. The boat is awaiting the engine installation.
