From the Owner

A very original and rare SeaBird Sport model. Built only one year, 1936. The crowned hull and curved aft flagpole give her a racy look. The Ford flathead 85HP engine gave lots of power. After initial life on Lake Rosseau, she was acquired by a Niagara River teenager for dating, instead of his first car. Bravely run above the Falls until changed hands again. The new owner promptly sunk her on a piling. Fell into disuse. Shot at by further disgruntled owner, still bear bullet marks on cutwater. Eventually restored by Michael Windsor for Six Mile Lake owners. Then found her way back to Lake Muskoka. Toured International ACBS boat shows at Lake George [New York], Ottawa, and Gravenhurst where awarded Best Runabout Preserved in 2009.
