Back in 2018 some photos showed up on ebay, which of course I scooped up fast for around $5.00 and then digitized them and shared them with you all. They are images after all and part of the fun is sharing such things. I then gave some of the images to some of the folks that owned the boats in the images. For example Miss Algonac was in one or two of them, and so off they went to be reunited with the boats. Yesterday, new photos showed up on ebay from that same collection. All these are from a storage unit sold by one of the Mackerer grand kids. One can only imagine the loss here. An entire industry history captured in boxes tucked away in a storage unit in Florida. I just want to puke. But such is life, and the old sayn, one mans junk… and thankfully the seller saved them and at least is making them available.
So here is another chance for you to purchase some of these images if you want. I don’t see the value in some of these? But a couple are cool, and if you own the boat, or are part of a Matthews Club museum thing, the images are priceless.
