Here is a pic of a dodge water car at one of the local marinas in Muskoka. It is sitting outside uncovered and appears currently in good condition. Note the name on the back is the Horace one of the dodge brothers who supposedly had a cottage in Muskoka . Could this be his personal boat.
No. Both Dodge brothers died during the Flu epidemic in the late 19teens. It was Horace Jr. who started the Dodge boat company in 1925 from the money his mother got from selling the Dodge bros car company to Walter Chrysler.
