    Great shots from The Great Lake State. Love the twin Merc’s on that lapstrake of unknown origin. Those boats look wonderful in that blinding winter Michigan sunshine.

  2. Dennis Mykols

    The white lapstrake is a1961 Dunphy raised deck camper with twin 1961 Mercury 800 outboard motors.

    Matt you are a fruit loop. How do you come up with this stuff?

  5. Bob VandeVusse

    You did a pretty good job on the captions, Matt, but for those sticklers for detail, here is a bit more. Pic 1 is a ’56 Crestliner Voyager, incredibly clean aluminum boat with a Johnson 35 Super Sea Horse for power. Pic 4 is a 1935 Old Town square stern canoe wit a an early 2 hp Johnson. Pic 5 is a 1961 Willys, the sweet two vehicle for the Crestliner. Pic 6 is a 1941 Century 16-footer. Pic 8 is a 1948 Chris Craft Custom, powered by a CC MCL. Pic 9 is a 1961 Dunphy raised deck camper with twin ’61 Merc 800s. Pic 10 is a 1948 Chris Craft 16′ Sportsman.
