1962 18.5' Greavette Flash Gentleman's Racer

1962 18.5′ Greavette Flash Gentleman’s Racer
From the Owner

Greg Hogarth grew up in this boat. Greg’s father purchased this boat in 1968, just after buying the Muskoka cottage. Greg recalls, “As a nine year old boy in 1968, I thought this boat was the coolest thing on the water. It screamed speed, elegance, & danger. I loved when dad started Flash. It was so loud. It would start with a big throaty roar and then idle down to a rumble growl interrupted by the lapping of water over the straight exhaust pipes at the waterline. As soon as I heard it, I would come running down to the boathouse to beg for a ride.” Having experienced a ‘Encapsulated Plank’ Breen Bottom with ‘Sthogie’, his Greavette Streamliner, Greg did not hesitate to give ‘Flash’ the same treatment with Peter Breen Antique & Classic Boat Co., knowing that this would be the end of his bottom troubles, period. Flash was re-finished along the way and received a new Mercruiser power plant. Greg can be spotted often running ‘Flash’ on Lake Joseph, usually at full speed.
