1903 28 Feet Canadian Cedar Strip Launch

The "Long Lake Lady" is a beautiful 28 ft. open launch with 8 ft. beam, built in 1903 in Peterborough, ON. On a business trip to Toronto in 1998, owner Chuck Maziasz and son-in-law, Randy Millwood, found the "Lady" in the back of a barn covered in dust and in pretty bad shape. Deciding it would be a perfect fit on Long Lake, she underwent two years of painstaking restoration under the loving hands of Ken Lavalette of Woodwind Yachts in Nestleton, ON. Leaving much original as possible, they did change the seating to be more accommodating for passengers. She was launched on Long Lake in the summer of 2000. The engine was replaced in 2007 with an Atomic 4 engine by Torresen Marine Inc. of Muskegon, MI. The original engine for the boat from 1903 is in excellent condition and has been stored since coming to MI and is sold with the "Lady". She was originally used to ferry vacationers to their remote cottages in the islands of Toronto area in the early 1900's. Early pictures depict her with a canopy top. The "Lady" now leads the annual 4th of July boat parade around Long Lake, being the only wooden boat. Through the years she has been in several boat shows in Northern Michigan and won Best of Show and Boat Owners Choice awards in 2016. She is a beautiful and eye-catching picture as she putts down the lake in wonderful northern MI summers. The "Lady" comes with a custom storage cover and two day covers to protect her finish. She tows beautifully on a duel axle trailer, and has been stored in covered facilities near her home. Yearly refinishing as needed keeps her in beautiful condition.
