OK Samuel, or Jacob, have we got this boat for you! Now its on Ebay, so maybe you are not on that. But if you are reading this, here is the description from the seller. Now at first you may be laughing at this thing, but once you read the description it gets cooler and cooler. Which we know being cool is not an Amish thing, but boating on the road isn’t really all that cool anyway. So its a win win for you Abram.
“This Buggy Craft was created in the mid 30’s. My dad had a near-death experience with a wooden boat when he was a teenage. All though he loved wooden boats he was scared to go on them. He rabbit hunted with to buddies of his that worked at the Chris Craft plant in Algonac Michigan.
He ask his buddies if they would design and build him a wooden boat on a horse buggy frame. We lived on a farm and had horses. He road this Buggy Craft for many years going to the store and visiting family and friends. He loved this Buggy Craft. He could be in a Chris Craft boat and not be on the water. As the time went by I lost track of this Buggy Craft until one day my brother ask me if I wanted dad’s Buggy Craft.
He had stored it in his barn for all these years. He was selling his farm and had no place to stored it. I said I would take it. I have over the years restored old wooden Chris Craft boats. So I though I would restore this Buggy Craft. I had to replace some of the hardware that over the years disappeared also some of the wood. It is in great condition now. I want some one out there to enjoy this Buggy Craft as much as my dad did. This Buggy Craft has to be pick up at my house in Dryden Michigan. I updated the buggy frame with one I got from the Amish with rubber tires and rear hydraulic breaks. The size of the Buggy Craft is 68″ wide by 10′ long and 67″ high.This Buggy Craft is wired for the bow light and also the flag pole light with a 12 volt system.There is red tail lights in the rear exhaust ports.”
