Fellow Woody Boater Mark Kantor is in the process of restoring a 1957 Tollycraft 14′ Rumpus and needs some help. Okay we all need a little help, his fortunately seems to be limited to just color related questions. Okay maybe some history on the brand, okay maybe there is more. Maybe Mark needs some “Varnish Therapy”. Mark, Spoiler Alert – it’s all your parents fault. Anyway here is Marks note and some snaps. OH SNAP!
I have removed the 1970’s paint and most of the varnish down to bare wood and discovered some original gold/bronze paint near the stern… I was interested in finding more info about these boats and if you could point me in the direction of more info about my boat.
So there you have it. The good news is Texx did a story on a wonderful Tahoe winning Rumpus, and maybe one of you has some thoughts on the topic. mmmmm Yes, Mark is asking the internet for opinions. What could possibly go wrong?
And yes There is a debate on Rumpas, or Rumpus. The Tollycraft Brochure has it as RumpUs….
Here is an ad for Tollycraft, this has fins, but the hull is painted for sure
