1963 Thompson Sea Mate.

No engine. The boat and trailer are in reasonably good condition. I have been running it every year for the last ten years through the summer of 2019.

She is water tight and solid. In the last five years it has gotten a new deck, new seats with custom upholstery, skeg replaced and new windshield framing. The boat needs one frame replaced which could be scarfed in. She needs varnish and paint.

I think it is a great boat for a small lake or pond. We moved to Bristol Rhode Island and I feel it is just too light given the prevailing winds here on Narragansett Bay.

Obviously we would like it to go to a home where the folks are familiar with Thompsons and give her the attention she needs. Lots of happy memories here and she turns heads on the launch ramp.

1959 Thompson Sea Lancer.

Totally original with the 1959 Mercury Mark 58 and trailer that was bought with the boat.

The boat was included by the daughter of the original owners when we bought their cabin on a lake in Michigan. We believe the boat has never been worked on. It has been stored inside and covered.

The last time it was in the water was 1986.

1959 Thompson Thomboy.

She was built in 1959 and sold for the first time in 1960.

The boat has always been trailered for day use, only on fresh water lakes and never put in the water for any extended period. When a divorce came into the picture in 1964, one of my best friends bought it and we spent much of the next seven years enjoying it.

In 1974, two years after he was transferred to Pittsburgh he called me and said the water was too polluted for his taste, so I bought her. I’ve had the boat ever since.

She is sitting on the original Tee Nee trailer. The engine, a Mercury Mark 78, runs fine and was gone through in 2016. At that time the impeller was replaced among other maintenance items and is in excellent shape.

The bottom has been painted however she could use a coat of varnish on the brightwork. It has been a reliable and fun boat all these years with many more to offer. I want her to go to a good home. She only needs a little TLC.

Best offer.

Very rare Thompson Victory Day Cruiser.

Built in 1965 this model was built in a very limited quantity.

She comes in at 24’ and is totally original including the Gator trailer as well as the top and aft cover with the Thompson emblem. She has always been kept indoors.

From 1965 to 2000 she was on Lake Minnetonka Mn. In 2000 I purchased it and restored it, and have used it every summer at my cabin on Leech Lake, MN since.

The Victory Day Cruiser was the largest Thompson built, at least in their era of wood production for that period. In 2002 I brought her to the Thompson rally in Marinette Wisconsin where Pete Thompson told me they built a couple more, one with twin engines for the Michigan Army Core of Engineers. She is powered by a 240 CI inline six cylinder GM engine with a Mercruiser I drive. Both engine and outdrive have been totally rebuilt. The 165 HP power plant pushes it right along. The pictures with this ad include a shot of John and Virginia Good, the original owners who special ordered it from the Thompson factory in Peshtigo, Wisconsin.

The boat includes too many options and extras to list including Mooring lines, life jackets, anchor etc.

Best offer.

Early 1950’s Thompson Take Along - model 240

The boat is in good condition and was in the care of my dad and brother for fifty years. The boat was on Lake St. Clair until 1970. At that point it was moved to my brother’s garage until 2001 when it was taken to our cabin in the upper peninsula of Michigan where it has been in the basement since. It comes with a couple of old oars.

1962 Thompson Sea Lancer

17'2" with original 100 HP Volvo Penta inboard/outboard. Dual axle Tee Nee trailer. Was viewed by collector/enthusiast in 2010 when our family purchased it. Reported on Thompson discussion boards as, "Both boat and engine in extremely good condition. The engine is very CLEAN and no rot or water staining visible."

Improvements since purchase in 2010: Replaced lower keel (everything beneath floor inspected and the boat is structurally sound with no rot); oil pan gasket replaced in 2011, no looseness in rod bearings; new battery in 2013; all (LED) trailer lights function as new; replaced roller bunks with 2"x6" bunks; replaced fuel pump; alternator checked out by Fondy in 2013 and in good health; repainted bottom from brown/white to blue/white.

We have all original parts including bilge pump, trailer lights, fuel pump (rebuild kit still available from Penta). Will include sturdy boat stands, extra prop, half gallon of leftover bottom paint and original roller bunks.

The year 1962 was the only year that Thompson Boat Mfg. Co. had the padded upholstered "eyebrows" on the dashboard. The boat's hull ID H20307 indicates it was the 307th of all boats built in the model years 1962, most likely mid to late December 1961. Serial number 21410. Previous to our purchase, it was owned by one meticulous owner. Both upholstery and canvas top are original and imperfect. Upholstery and weathered canvas lop may need to be replaced.

Boat is in Neenah, Wisconsin. $5900.00 Eric and Gina Larsen, 920-810-1091 ericandgina@ameritech.ent (WI)
