Manufactured in Geneva, N. Y., by the Fay & Bowen Engine Co. “Faye” is 22. Ft long and her hull number - 516 – dates her to about 1914. A company catalogue of the period states: “Although we still build the old ‘Fantail’ model to order, the popular type of smart boat is the ‘Torpedo’ hull.” The original Fay & Bowen engine (probably 2-cylinder 10 H.P.) went astray and eventually “Faye” was brought to Canada to be converted to steam. Nothing came of this, and in 1987 she was restored by Clarion Boat Works and fitted with a 60 H.P. Chris Craft engine. She still sports her “noiseless” underwater exhaust, a standard feature of Fay & Bowens of that time. "Faye" belonged to Graeme Ferguson (1929-2021) filmmaker, inventor, and one of the founders of IMAX Corporation. "Faye" is in excellent condition, lovingly maintained and stored in a boathouse at Graeme's home at Lake of Bays, Ontario.
