In 1958 Skagit Plastics Inc., an established boat manufacturer based in La Conner, Washington, licensed production rights to some of their designs to Thermolite in British Columbia (which produced the ubiquitous white Styrofoam coolers). Thermolite, perhaps recognizing that a line of boats with “lite” in the name might present some marketing challenges, branded the boats “Thermocraft”. Production of Thermocraft boats continued until at least 1963, some two years after Skagit Plastics ceased production.
This boat spend many years on Muskoka lakes before I purchased it in 2012.
The boat has an unusually deep freeboard, testament to its Pacific Ocean roots.
