BEAUTIFUL BOATHOUSE FIND!
This beautiful boat was a pleasant and unexpected surprise June 2017 when Ron Stevenson went to look at an old motor he heard was available for sale in the small community of Washago, Ontario in the Township of Severn north of Orillia and south of Gravenhurst.
Not only was the motor a rare 1958 Evinrude Lark 35HP but the boat was equally as rare!
This 1958 Rideau Mark I Sangstercraft had been stored in the boathouse where Ron discovered it for over 20 years.
Ron knew I was looking for a vintage fiberglass boat. Knowing Ron’s extensive knowledge of old boats and motors and trusting his judgement I didn’t hesitate and went up the day following Ron’s call to have a look at this diamond in the rough!
Ron was right! Purchased it on sight, and with Ron’s help managed to get her home.
Since then Ron has rebuilt the motor, the bow and stern has been buffed by TWITCHCRAFT to bring back its original rich red color and luster, and the chrome has been polished. The interior is all original.
Always fun when she’s on the water!
Many thanks to Ron and Rich (of TWITCHCRAFT) for all their help.
