A HUGE thanks to owned by Manny & Juanita Del Arroz and “Fourty Pines” a 1941 28’6″ Gar Wood Flagship Triple Cockpit powered by a 300 HP V-12 Scripps, for sending us all updated photos of his amazing Flagship Streamliner the last one built. I love this model. The engine, the design and love that FLAGSHIP on the bow! It’s being restored at one of our favorite places, Sierra Boats On Lake Tahoe. HERB YOU RULE!
I’ve used Woody Boater as a resource. So, thought you might like to seeing my 1941 Gar Wood. Its is the very rare 1941 Gar Wood – Flagship Streamliner. It has a Scripps V12. All original.
Now currently doing the deck. The 80 year old boat is in perfect original condition. All the Wood is in great shape.
The leather needed replacement.
The original was a patriotic theme. Red, white and blue theme for the war to match the Flagship name. The leather was custom dyed in a deep red.
It is believed that two 28 flagships were built. The second has not been seen. The Gar Wood Flagship was displayed at the New York boat show when new in 1940 or 41. Later sent to Lake Tahoe where it currently resides.
The Flagship Streamliner is the final pinnacle of Gar Wood design and refinement.
By spring 2020 the boat will be on Lake Tahoe. Restoration by Sierra Boat. Will send final pictures when done.
All the picture of the boat on the water are before restoration. The boat had not been restored for for 40 years or so.
The Flagship was featured in Gar Wood Boats: Classics of a Golden Era by Anthony S. Mollica (1999, Hardcover) Had a different name. Original name was Forty Pines.
