Description

The Great Lakes Golden Years.
This book chronicles the milestone watercraft that were manufactured on the Great Lakes and became legendary in the boating world. The history of racing boats, runabouts, cruisers, and commuters manufactured by Chris-Craft, Gar Wood, Hacker and Century is examined and profiled in archival and modern colour photography. These majestic boats were once the ultimate vision of success. The time and effort it took to build and maintain them is evident in their artistry and beauty. The eventual dominance of fibreglass spelled the end of this era, but examples of these gorgeous boats still continue to make waves.
