The Floating Jewels of Muskoka

This launch is named “res ipsa loquitur” or “the thing speaks for itself.”
I am not certain if this beauty is a Greavette,  Minett-Shields or some other Muskoka woody. It looks to be about 30 feet long and has the obligatory mother in-laws seat at the stern. This is the first time I have ever seen this majestic launch, perhaps it was being restored these past few years.

I was not able to get a good shot as I was at the helm of my own boat navigating through the channel at Port Sandfield when I saw her. I’m sure we will meet again. (Please click for supersize pic)

    The old, wooden boats certainly conjure up times gone by! What a contrast to the new speed demons!

    Don’t you just love these old wooden boats…they have so much character!

    I went to a boat show in Mount Dora FL a couple of years ago and there were many of these beauties restored to perfection!

    Great shot…looks as though everyone is prepared for the coming boating season!

    I MISS being there to see these old Beauties elegantly cut through the waters of Muskoka. I love checking out your PICS and cannot wait to be in “MY MUSKOKA” for July and August. Take more PICS and post more often please…
