My late mother June (the greatest mom & teacher of them all) & her fellow upstairs in Heaven buddy & canine son Tex the loyal dog, along with my dad, my sister, my brother & myself are trying to track down a family boat built my dad & my grandfather in MCMLXVI (1966.) They spent over 800 hours building it & named it the "Junie-Bug" after mom. The registration at the time was #2H-15432 but the registration may have changed to #2H-19632. Our family is now offering a reward of five-hundred dollars ($500.00) Canadian Funds for information leading to its successful return. Dad always regretted his MCMLXXII (1972) sale of the boat as the family spent countless hours on Wabamun Lake with it.
It was made of 3/8" mahogany marine plywood & then covered in fibreglass. It was 18" long & seated 8 people & had white seats with red trim. At the time of its sale it had a Westbend/Chrysler 80 hp motor in it & a tube trailer. Our family would just love to buy it back to repair & have my nieces & nephews & future generations ride around in it. An ad with further details can be found today in an ALL NEW edition of "The Edmonton Sun" on the 66th page!
