Lets Play Some Idaho What Is It. OH And There Is An Answer.
This in from Ron Stevenson who thought it would be fun to share in the joy of discovery.
This is a 1940 16 foot lap clinker aka lapstrake. It is all copper riveted. This was a prototype built before the war. He always wanted to be a boat builder. But the war interrupted. After the war, were not sure how many more of these built but surely less than ten. One clue is the fellow lived in Sidney, British Columbia.
Denny Johnson met the fellow in the AOMC, the Antique Outboard Motor Club here in the Pacific Northwest. It was given to Denny before the fellow (another clue!) then in his late 80’s died. It is not a Thompson or a Lyman. The boat is a bit beamier (sp?) than most, and is great for use in Puget Sound So what is it?
Now here is the twist.. The answer is on our Facebook page.. HAAAAA! That’s right, if you have yet to like us on Facebook so we can beat the Antique Boat Museum, do it now, and you will get the reward of knowledge!
You guys crack me up!
Its a living! Wait no it isnt..
Ok, so you don’t have to go to the Facebook page the answer is…………………………………………Come on get real do you really think I’d risk pissing Matt off. Just go to the damn page. How much does he really ask of us?
It looks like Denny will have it at the CDA show. I will go there rather than FB to find the answer.
I know what it is. It is Beautiful. Finallly some Lapstrakes that rule. Thanks!
