From 1882 to the 1930's only two companies from New York City made bathroom fixtures which became common place on boats and rail cars. The most attractive and successful design was the fold down sink which was ideal for close quarters. They were used on Chris Craft Commuters, Elco's, Robinson Seagull's, Richardson's, Sea Lyon's, American Car and Foundry's and Wheeler Playmate's. Today these are sought after by yacht and cruiser and train car owners alike. This unit is in excellent condition after being restored and is ready to complete your project and adorn your pride and joy.

This 1960's shepherd Cruiser is a rare
and seldom seen boat. The boat has in the water this season but needs
attention. Most of the interior cabin has been disassembled so as to
allow for better ventilation. The engines run smooth and strong which
will allow the new owner to focus on the visual aspects such as paint
and varnish. This is a great Canadian boat which should be restored to
its original glory.

molded mahogany outer skin using an epoxied saturation technique and no
mechanical fasteners. The decks and interior lining are made from solid

This boat was purchased in 1924 by the current owner's grandfather for the worldly sum of $900 as a used boat. She was built by mcneil norris
of Bala, Ontario 2 years earlier and was powered by a Buchanan Junior
engine. The boat sat unused for a number of years and received a
complete restoration between 1986 and 1996. At this time, a Gray Marine
4-70 engine was installed. After heading down south to a new owner, the
boat returned to her original home in 2004. She is a wonderful example
of Canadian craftsmanship and is a very beautiful long deck launch. She was refinished in 2012 and is used regularly.

All original gauges and hardware. Purchased by the current owners about 10 years ago, fresh varnish applied to the topsides, used little, and stored in a climate controlled facility. Upholstery is in excellent condition. This boat was originally built for a customer in New Hampshire.
