    Maybe if I sell the house, send the kids to community college and hunt for cans along the roadside…………Honey we’re living in a tent for the rest of our lives. But we’re gonna have some real cool boats!

    I hope the new owner/s care for them as much as Tom did. I was fortunate enough to see the collection a couple times. He embodied the spirit of vintage racing, in both cars and boats. My cottage is 2 miles from Tom’s place on a nearby lake and you could always hear when he ran the boats.

    The boat that is claimed to be “Little Miss Canada VI” is really a boat named “Miss Windsor” and was designed by my
    father in the late nineteen forties for a gentleman by the name of Robert Parker who had a marina in Windsor, Ontario, hence the name “Miss Windsor”. It is my intention
    to merely set the record straight, for the sake of the Wilson and Van Patten clans, as well as potential would-be buyers of
    the boat. Be warned, this boat is not Little Miss Canada VI.

    I now own Chickie VI, the 16′ Hydroplane complete with both engines that it raced in (two classes). One is the dual carburetor Flathead V-8. The second is the Gray Marine flathead six cylinder with triple carburetors. I was told it was a record holder.
    Any information on it and on Pop Glazier would be much appreciated. Thank.
