“We Three” has been a fixture on Long Lake in the Adirondacks since she was delivered to the original owner, WA Raney in April 1946. After the passing of Mr. Raney, his daughter sold the Gar Wood to Dr. and Mrs. Shelly in April 1996 and she remains on Long Lake to this day. She won numerous boat shows from South Carolina and North Carolina. The Clayton Boat show, is where she won Best preserved, Best Gar Wood and a few “Best of show”. This Gar Wood is about as original as any boat one can find other than some of the upholstery which was really beginning to show some wear. All the wood on her, including her bottom, is original. One might wonder when looking at her due to the lighter “sapwood” which is found on her forward port side, but that is exactly how she came from the factory. She was built to go to the 1946 New York Boat Show, but that show, due to the war, never became a reality and she was then taken to Hearn’s Dept. Store as a boat to use for sales. She was the only Gar Wood of her kind built and primarily for that show. Mr. Ranney had taken his daughter to Hearns to purchase clothing and saw this particular boat, inquired about purchasing one like it and was told “he should consider purchasing this boat due to rumors that the company would or might be closing in the near future. He purchased her on the spot. Mr. Raney purchased the boat right off the floor from the Dept. Store in January of 1946.
