From the Owner

Boat was built by J.J. Taylor & Sons at their yard next  to the National Yacht Club in Toronto. It was from a design by George Crouch who had designed the Heldena Gold Cup race boats built in 1916 and 1921 by Taylor. It was built for the Toronto Harbour Commission in 1935 for its Life Saving & Port Patrol division which had a fleet of a dozen boats of which 4 remain today!  They are Heldena ll owned by Rick McGraw, # 5 still owned by the Toronto Harbour police which they use for ceremonial events, # 6 recently restored in Minnesota and # 7 bought as a wreck by me and restored by Curtis Hillman.
