about 1963 boat show picture

Postby LancerBoy » Mon Feb 22, 2010 4:19 pm

Here is a picture of a circa 1963 boat show. Probably in the Midwest. Can you ID any of the boats? The SunFish sailboat is easy. The boat nearest the camera on the bottom of the picture of a wooden lapstrake T & T Boats, Inc. of Wausaukee, Wisc. Are those some Cruisers, Inc. boats left of center?

This came from the archive of the former WesCraft Boat firm from Kansas. I am sorting it and scanning it at the present time.

The bow sticking out from the sail boat mast looks like my Cruisers 202, thats a pair of Johnsons just below.
I have several boat show shots from Fort Worth in the late 50s, I will post.
Great Job Andreas!

This family company had a huge impact on this area, they were involved in early hydroplane racing and populated Eagle Mountan Lake with Wooden Chris Crafts and boats of their own design. Thanks to Trey Herring for saving and sharing.
