1906, 28 ft Askew Launch
This rare vintage launch was found in a boathouse near Big Chute, and for her age, is in surprisingly good shape. Built by Askew's Boat Works, Hamilton, Ontario. Together with brother-in-law, George Crossman, we are trying to research more information from the family on this beautiful boat, and we also are trying to obtain more information on the Askew Boat Company. This boat may very well have to 'bump' some of her sister project boats for a faster restoration spot in the shop!
1949, 17 ft Shepherd
Very stable boat! Purchase outright, or contact us to purchase and
restore for you!
6 ft Canada 1 Racer from the 1950's
1962, 25ft Chris-Craft Constellation
The Hendren's first wooden boat (1991) was this Chris-Craft. After 4 years of (off & on) restoration, and with a young family requiring frequent attention, the boat was sold - with the intention that "someday soon" we'd go looking for another boat. John had completed all of the wood work, including some plank and rib replacement, and a new transom and deck, as well as a mahogany insert along the top of the hull. Hopefully her new owner will complete the project and will be able to enjoy this fine little cruiser for years to come.
17 ft OMC Deluxe
Hopefully time will allow this stable, awesome, litte 1963 "Fibre-classic" to be totally restored at some point. Anticipated as being 'the' boat to get lots of family usage around the cottage and the Kawartha Lakes. Its style, design and speed will lend itself perfectly for watersports.
Late 40's early 50's 22 ft Shepherd
John's "dream boat" - a late 40's/ early 50's 22ft. Shepherd. When spotted at a nearby boat restorer's,
John just couldn't resist making a deal by swapping a rare Peterborough Seafarer. Certainly in need of TLC ++, but not impossible, this Shepherd now sits in John's personal "field of dreams."
14 ft Custom Craft Manta Ray
A funky little fibre-classic, we hope to restore this in the not too distant future
