Now I am stumped. According to fellow Woody Boater Mike Mayer or Lake Oswego Boat Comapany. He has found in his files another Thayer IV. Now, upon close inspection, it appears to be slightly different that the one seen on film. But time and restorations along the line can change some things. It is wood. And is a boat. But, it looks a tad off.
We have consulted Pat Curtin and he says. This guy is full of crap. OK Pat didn’t say that. But I bet he would. Ken Miller is trying to defend it, but it just is to far gone for even Ken. Anonymous in ? is still wondering why we need to take shots at 1802 regardless of the fact that we havn’t.
And the current owner, who we don’t know I am sure thinks its the real deal because the guy that sold it to him said it was it. by the way, it was running when it went into the barn 20 years ago, and was just varnished…20 years ago.. All the makings of a fun boat. Thanks Mike. All kidding aside, it is a very cool boat and a worthy project. No listing on it, it was just in Mikes files. And things were getting boring here..
