Rushton Indian Girl

Restored for a collector by Tom MacKenzie, with hull perfectly smoothed and covered in lightweight Sekonite. This is a Grade A Indian Girl which was virtually mint before the restoration, fully complete including the fancy bow thwart and builder's plates. Owner would like to get back his investment and that is still a good deal for the best Indian Girl I have ever seen, $7500

Finished Micro

This is a Bolger Micro, a trailer-sailer with a shallow ballast keel, which gives the boat great stability and leaves the cuddy completely clear of obstruction. I acquired this boat nearly new but without its spars, sails, or keel, without some of its flotation, and with a companionway and hatch not according to plan. I have built the keel, with 420 lbs of lead in it, made a new hatch and slide, put in the flotation, provided spars, and had Douglas Fowler make new sails.



Moreover, I put a drop-axle on the trailer, lowering the trailer frame a full 8", so now this boat launches and retrieves as easily and shallowly as the centerboard and leeboard Bolger sailboats I have had. It floats on and off the trailer just before my car's rear wheels touch the water. These boats have been built all over the world. The sailing shot below is of a Micro sailing in South Australia. The shot of my daughter cutting up an apple in the cabin is meant to suggest how roomy the cabin is, with sitting headroom for tall people on two long wide berths, ample space between, and no obstructions. Boat comes with an 8-horse Honda 4-stroke running perfectly.The boat is now more completely detailed than in these photos, with mahogany rub-rails and toe-rails on the cabin and a wider, thicker side-molding. It has a brand new eight-sided mast and newly varnished spars. I think the boat would be a good deal at $7000, less than half the cost of building and equipping a new one, but Bolgeristos are cheapskates and DIYers like me, and nobody will pay that much. We like the boat so much, and use it on Lake Champlain and Lake Ontario as well as lakes around home, it will be hard to part with, but I'll sell it for $4000 unless I sell the unfinished one first.

I've now added a good winter cover using the Kover Klamps system, $450 extra.









Rushton Indian Girl wood/canvas Canoe

This looks terrible at first glance but actually is an unusually good 17 foot hull, smooth and strong and all original, a Grade B Indian girl as in the Rushton 1903 catalog. Probably a late boat, it has the number 2020 stamped in its stem. One of the most desired old canoes and a good candidate for a proper restoration since it needs no new ribs or planking and only the tips of its stems. From a fine old camp on Lake Placid.
