    Default 1959 Thompson Sea Lancer restoration

    IMG_E9130.jpgIMG_9090.jpgJust about completed with restoration of this 1959 Thompson Bros. Boat Mfg. Co. 17 ft Sea Lancer. Plywood lapstrake planking over steam bent white oak ribs. Pushed by the stinkiest of the stink pots - 1958 Johnson 50 HP outboard motor. Did my shakedown cruise on Sunday the 9th of Aug 2020 on Lake Michigan's Green Bay. She passed the sea trials!

    Back in 1956 / 1957, we had a 26' Steelcraft painted in those exact colors . Kept the boat in Burn's ditch (later Burn's Harbor ) , Indiana at the south end of Lake Michigan .
