A Beautiful “Beetle” – 13-1/2′ Elgin Runabout
VESSEL: 1950’s – 131/2′ Elgin Runabout “BEETLE”
OWNER: The Michels Family, Michigan, U.S.A.
PROJECT: Remove and replace every rib in vessel, 2 planks, the transom, decks, coaming, inwales, outwales, bilge stringers, outer stem and keel. Straighten hull and completely refasten vessel. Completely refinish “Beetle” inside and out.
“Beetle” had been with her original family since new. Unfortunately, like so many nice old boats, she was now suffering from years and years of neglect. It gave us great pleasure to completely restore and refinish this little craft for her original owners.
