T & T Boats factory pictures

Postby LancerBoy » Thu Nov 04, 2010 8:02 am

Here are a few pictures from February 1964 of T & T Boats, Inc. at Wausaukee, WI. These came out of a newspaper article on the Marinette (WI) Eagle Star on 22 February 1964.

These are scans of photocopies taken from the original green sheet newspaper. So they are not very good quality.

Please keep em coming if you've got more. I already saw something in one of the ones you posted that explained a small detail of how my boat was constructed to me. Sorry if I am beginning to sound a bit anal, but I was a Marine Designer for some years but worked on US Navy Warships. What that means is I have a great appreciation for design and construction but very little knowlege of wooden boat design and building. And like most engineers, I tend to get stuck in minutia at times.

I'd have a boat and a Harley even if there were no water or roads in the world.
