Originally built just as WWII broke out, this boat was put on hold as W.J. Johnson was conscripted to build Mine Sweepers in Honey Harbour, ON. After the war, once engines could be sourced, she was finally delivered in the spring of 1947. Hope V is a very original Muskoka boat that only had two prior owners when Rick McGraw bought it in 2012 to complete his fleet. It went to Peter Breen Antique & Classic Boat Co. “tired” as most are at this stage in their life requiring a new bottom, and total re-finishing above the waterline. A Mercruiser V-8, modern power and a Encapsulated Plank Breen Bottom make this both a piece of history, and a turn-key practical boat. She is now used and enjoyed regularly by the McGraw family from her Lake Muskoka home
