Okay, here is one for the peanut gallery. And wouldn’t really change the boats value, but if anyone has any kind of info on this one it would be interesting for the new owners. Who are giving this to their Mother and Father for a big B Day surprise.
It’s okay, they are still dealing with the concept of push button land lines. So no chance they will see this. This is not a slight on our fellow Q tips. Its them personally. They are not all that into the internet thing according to there kids. Who BTW, are my age ish.
I have tried to reach Pat Curtain, but have 6 cell phone numbers for him and countless emails. So hopefully he is reading.
Anyway, for those of you still here. Here is the story they were told. This U24 1959 was the crew boat on Squam Lake used during the filming of On Golden Pond. See, it’s a Kinda story. Now, its rumored that Katherine Hepburn rode around on her and owned her. Now I aint sayn yes or no this. And there are a fair share of On Golden Pond boats out there that are not even close. But there is some sort of connection here, and this is a meaningless story line to increase a boats history as to value.
But a fun story. So, anyone know any history of that 24 Sportsman. Here is the note from the new owner.
The name of the boat will be the “Sutphin VII”. It’s my parents last name and then the number 7 for the number of kids they have. It’s an nod to the “Thayer IV”.
I was told when I bought the boat that the name of the boat was the Classy Lassy. Not sure the spelling. They said that was the name for the boat for the past three owners.
