Beyond Passion

Some Thoughts from Dana Mecum My words here are intended to help you know the man behind the Warner Collection and the reason this auction is taking place. This auction began for me as another piece of business. After a trip to Minnesota to inventory the auction, I became aware this was much more. When I arrived, there was already a team on site in full gear working on “get ready” of inventory including clean up and moving of boats to the auction facility. They were at full steam with a dedication comparable to a Mecum Auction crew at work. They were not a Mecum crew, they were Todd Warner’s Mahogany Bay wood boat business staff and crew. In the middle was Todd piloting the ship. When the Mecum crew landed on site, Todd’s group had us two to three days ahead of the power curve on this massive undertaking. Over two days of working side by side, I realized who this person was. Over the past several years the word passion has become vogue to describe people dedicated to their task at hand that enjoy what they are doing. Todd Warner is beyond passion. Wood boating is his culture. It’s his DNA. It’s his way of life. He began as a youngster and has remained at the forefront for over 40 years. For Todd to sell his beloved collection of boats, like a 17’ Higgins which he has had since he was age 14, has not been easy for him “to get his head around.” The auction is a necessity for Todd to raise needed capital to re-organize and re-energize. His business is Mahogany Bay Wood Boats which specializes in buying, selling and restoring wood boats.

As all of us in business have over the last few years experienced the struggle to keep a business running with the shortage of participation from the banking industry. The equity from the auction of the collection will take the “pressure” off Todd and allow him to continue his life work and commitment to wood boats. The structure of the auction is “no reserve.” Todd realizes some boats will be bargains and he is confident that some of the treasures will bring a great return to his stewardship of them. While visiting with Todd, I’ve learned his desire and goal is to see the wood boat hobby come alive and achieve more value. Compared to classic automobiles these treasures have been greatly overlooked. He also realizes this auction will serve as a cornerstone in awakening the awareness of wood boat collecting and that his boats will sell for a fraction of what their values may be in 5 years. He is excited and realizes that activity creates a market. And, he is proud his collection will bring so many collectible boats and motors to market and bring the hobby to the mainstream. Personally, I’m excited about Mecum’s future with Todd and Mahogany Bay after this cornerstone auction. Welcome to the awakening of an American treasure…The Warner Collection. - Dana Mecum


For Todd Warner wood boating is more than a passion, it is a way of life. Warner grew up on Minnesota’s Lake Minnetonka, a 20th century boating hotbed, and as a boy was fed by his father’s devotion to preserving what he considered an American art form. As a teenager he saw how the new fiberglass speedboats, with their lower production costs and maintenance requirements, spelled the end of the production wood pleasure boat industry. “1968 was the last year of production wood speedboat building for both Chris-Craft Corporation and Century Boat Company,” Todd explains. “By that time the attraction of not having to work on a speedboat outweighed the perceived value of these American treasures. I have to give credit to my Dad’s vision back in the 60s to see the value of these boats when they were just

about valueless to just about everyone, to the point that I recall going to the marinas and watching them burn boats just to get rid of them.” Warner refers to that period as “the first harvest of classic boats.” The experience ignited in him a deep sense of their historical import that has informed his entire adult life, a great deal of which he has spent promoting their preservation as original works of American art. “I was fortunate enough to grow up in and around Lake Minnetonka, which had a rich history in boatbuilding and boat ownership, and I was able through osmosis and direct activity to learn about the industry. “Through the years I’ve watched the classic wood boats slowly gain recognition as great and rare American treasures. They embodied naval


Todd Warner architecture, engineering, woodwork, design style and craftsmanship, all at the highest possible level, and people are coming to realize just how rare this American art form truly is. “Nothing, I believe, outside of the similarities to the early automotive industry, truly captured such varied disciplines, primarily because of the expense. Even in the earliest days when someone would buy an original watercraft, its builder would usually also build a custom boathouse to shelter his treasure, because the value of that boat was generally between five and twenty times the price of a new automobile; it was always more expensive to own an original Chris-Craft, Gar Wood, Hackercraft or Dodge boat than it was to own a car - only the wealthy could afford them in those early years.”

That exclusivity, of course, now translates into rarity, and the vast majority of classic wood boats are exceedingly rare, especially original, unrestored examples, to which Warner draws an interesting parallel. “If you were to replace the legs on a Chippendale table or a Sheraton sideboard, you would destroy the value. And I believe this is true in old boats as well. I like to label myself a preservationist and I think it is an important custodial obligation to future generations to not reinterpret what something was in a previous era. I think it’s our obligation to maintain originality whenever possible. “Classic boats have been my lifeblood, my passion and my dream for over 40 years, and I hope that those who are lucky enough to take one of them home will find their stewardship as rewarding as it has been for me.”

1932 Chris-Craft 27’ 309 Custom Triple Cockpit Runabout

Arguably the most well known Chris-Craft in the world, certainly the most photographed example, the Sugar Lady… is antique boating at its finest. 1932 was a low point for Chris-Craft, productionwise, along with the rest of the country. But like many Depression-era automobiles, some of the best things came from that period of time in American history. Known as a “Roll-deck” Chris-Craft for its transitional raised coamings around the cockpits, the top-of–the-line 27’ Custom Runabout was built for ten years with only 62 examples built – total. Sugar Lady is hull number 10, of only that many

1932 models. What makes Sugar Lady most unique however, is the oval-windowed Dietrich convertible top, known as a one-man top originally. In addition to the one-man top, Sugar Lady’s original build sheet documents that it was delivered with highcompression cylinder heads for its 825 cubic inch Chris-Craft A-120 V-8 engine. Completely restored by Doug Morin in the late 1980s, Sugar Lady is regarded as one of the finest triple cockpit runabouts anywhere.

1929 Chris-Craft 28’ 15 Sedan Limousine Runabout

Few boats can combine elegance, power, and function quite like Tuxedo Taxi. Originally delivered to California in 1929, Chris-Craft’s 28-foot runabout is a boating icon in itself, and with the addition of the factory installed Van Mourick Limousine sedan top, makes this example a showstopper. Known as an “upswept” Chris-Craft, a styling feature used on some of the higher-end models from 1929-1931, the foredeck leading up to the windshield curves up, and in the case of the 28-footer, the decking leading up to the aft cockpit has this feature as well, making this boat a “double-upswept.” Chris-Craft only built 180 of

the 1929-1931 28’ Runabout, and far fewer with the $900 optional sedan top. Five sedan versions

Tuxedo Taxi are known to exist, with Tuxedo Taxi being the only operational example. Powered by the incredibly rare, in-house ChrisCraft designed and built 825 cubic inch 225hp A-70 V-8, it is one of only a handful of these engines in operation today. After the graying, neglected hull of Tuxedo Taxi was located in the San Francisco Bay area, it became the after-hours project of legendary Tahoe restorer Tony Brown and the late Phillip Ballantyne. The project was finally commissioned and completed in 1994, winning several awards at the prestigious Lake Tahoe Concours d’ Elegance.

1962 Staudacher 32’ Hydroplane Unlimited Race Boat

Lester (“Les”) Staudacher designed and built some of the sport’s most successful Unlimited hydroplanes. Boats of his design won 51 races between 1953 and 1971. In 1956, Staudacher began construction on a conventional three-point hydroplane for Paul Sawyer that wasn’t put in the water for eighteen years. Tentatively titled ALTER EGO, the project was abandoned when Sawyer retired from racing. The unfinished craft was placed in storage. But Les and his helpers would occasionally “tinker” with it over the next decade when time permitted. The boat without a name was finally rescued from obscurity by Bob Schroeder.

Schroeder finally put the boat in the water in 1974 and ran it in a few races as the unnamed CU-22, powered by an Allison. It finished 8th at both Detroit, Michigan, and Dayton, Ohio. In 1983, Schroeder loaned ALTER EGO to Jim Sedam who ran it as MISS TOSTI ASTI. This was the first Unlimited to be driven by Todd Yarling.

Alter Ego Todd’s best finish was a third in the Missouri Governor’s Cup at Lake-of-the-Ozarks. Over the last two decades, Schroeder has entered ALTER EGO in quite a few Antique Boat Shows and taken many people for rides in it prior to selling the boat to the Warner Collection.

The Cart was actually built and shipped May of 1938 as a Special model, serving as a prototype for the 1939 29’ Sportsman. These boats were the largest open utilities built by Chris-Craft and decked out with every amenity possible. The Cart is also the only twin-engine model of the three known to exist.

Re-powered with twin Indmar V-8 engines in place of the original 130hp 6-cylinder M engines, The Cart sports a slew of modern conveniences including a head, galley, and sink.

1929 Dingle 30’ Triple Cockpit Runabout

Quite simply, the Gerry Lo may be the most famous runabout ever built in the state of Minnesota. Rich in Lake Minnetonka history, the Gerry Lo, a totally custom designed and built fast triple cockpit runabout by the Joseph Dingle Boat Works of St. Paul, Minnesota, is second to none. The Gerry Lo was the brainchild of millionaire Frank Wolcott Griswold, who invented the “Bobby” traffic signal, and was later successful in the coffee machine, hotel, and resort businesses. In January of 1928, Griswold and his team of engineers attended the New York Motor Boat Show and started the design of a 30-foot masterpiece. At the

Gerry Lo

time Dingle Boat Works was a strictly custom boat building company and had gained notoriety for building the 135-foot yacht, Norstar for the Mayo brothers of the famous Mayo Clinic. The Norstar was Dingle’s crowning achievement and the then largest yacht on the upper Mississippi. The total cost to build the Gerry Lo in 1929 was a staggering $25,000 of which $9,000 was the cost of the original Curtiss V-12 engine (not available). Construction methods included the strict use of Monel fasteners, which were found to be in perfect condition 60-years later. Some of the original hardware was sourced from Sea Lyon, and


the windshield was custom made for the boat. The dark stain on the Honduras mahogany planking is as original. The name Gerry Lo comes from the traditional practice of naming the boat after the children of the family’s names – Geraldine and Lois Mary Griswold. After being launched originally on Lake Minnetonka in 1929, the Gerry Lo quickly earned the reputation as the fastest boat on the lake. Following Frank Griswold’s death at the age of 96 in 1992, the boat was sold out of its original boathouse it had resided in since 1929. Its original engine had been removed in favor of a Chrysler


V-8. Deemed “under-powered” the Chrysler was replaced with a 1650 cubic inch Rolls-Royce Meteor V-12 originally designed for British tanks. The marine conversion was done by New England Boat & Motor. During the 3,000 hour restoration, the original bottom was replaced with a wood/Kevlar composite, totaling 7 layers. The bottom needed to be plenty strong to support the nearly 7,000 pound boat. A one-of-a-kind, custom built 30’ triple cockpit runabout, the Gerry Lo is the crown jewel of the Warner Collection.

The Stone Boat Yard in Alameda, California produced some of the best built gentlemen’s racers available for a period during the mid-2000s. The hulls were famous antique race boat designs modified to today’s cold-molded style of wood boat construction. Paul Dewhurst, a pioneer in epoxy cold-molded construction, built the African mahogany hull, which is all vacuum bagged, and then the hull was imported by Stone Boat Yard for fitting and rigging. Only two of the 27’6” hulls, like the one available here, were built. Powered by a 502 cubic inch Chevrolet based Pleasure Craft Marine fuel-injected V-8

engine, making 425 HP, this boat is a rocket. It is capable of speeds well in excess of 50mph. HIGHLIGHTS - Paul Dewhurst of Australia built - Stone Boatyard of Alameda, CA completed - One of two 27’6” hulls built - 502/425 HP fuel injected V-8

1996 Gar Wood 33’ Baby Gar Race Boat

A faithful replica of one of Garfield Wood’s most famous “Gentlemen’s Racers”, Baby Gar IV (and its sister Baby Gar V) are two of a kind. Originally, Gar Wood’s then business partner Chris Smith worked together on the design of Gar’s race boats and had Smith’s company build all of the Gar Wood piloted boats – Baby Gar IV was one of the last of these. At 33-feet long, the IV mirrored the production Baby Gar’s in many ways. The hull was basically the same, but the deck layout was quite different.

Baby Gar IV

Gar Wood was a fan of aft-steering controls, like his Gold Cup boats, so IV has a large, two-row seat aft, and a single cockpit forward of the engine compartment. Tom and Larry Turcotte (who operate GarWood Custom Boats in New York) built the two replica hulls of IV and V. V was built in 1993, and IV was built in 1996. IV was the only one to be powered by a 1920s Vimalert-Liberty 1650 cubic inch V-12 engine, very similar to what powered the original Baby Gar’s. Both IV and V were most

famous for racing together, and beating, the Twentieth Century Limited train from Albany, NY to New York City, in 1925. The hull was built using modern construction methods - epoxy cold-molded planking, and modern finishes. Baby Gar IV is an opportunity to re-capture a historical piece from boat racing’s past.

Only five of this early design are known to exist today. The first official year of production,

1927 Hackercraft 28’ Dolphin Deluxe Runabout

Representing a seldom seen, high-end restoration candidate, is this 1927 Hackercraft 28’ Dolphin Deluxe Runabout. With a market demanding a larger, faster runabout than the 26’ Hacker Dolphin of 1925 and 1928, famed Naval Architect and proprietor of the Hacker Boat Company in Mt. Clemens Michigan, penned a longer, leaner runabout – the Dolphin Deluxe. The characteristic Hacker sloping sheer line, the beautifully simplistic wood Dolphin windshield, to the thenradical tumblehome in the transom, the Dolphinseries Hackercraft’s were a thing of beauty. But the beauty was not only skin-deep. Known for being

tremendously well-built, with its closely spaced frames and copper-riveted construction, they were also incredibly light weight. Only built for one

year, this is one of only two examples known to exist. Priced at over $5,000 new in 1927, the generously appointed Dolphin Deluxe is an enthusiast favorite.

1936 Chris-Craft 22’ 519 Custom Triple Cockpit Runabout

Preserved… Un-touched – All are buzz words in the classic boating hobby and all apply to the Wee Don. Easily in the top five examples of littletouched prewar Chris-Crafts, it is the only triple cockpit example with such great patina. Originally purchased by Don Weezner through Minnetonka Boat Works in Wayzata, Minnesota, the Wee Don, a 22’ triple cockpit Chris-Craft powered by a Chrysler Royal straight-8 engine, was immediately put into racing duty in Wayzata, and was the Class B – 5 mile Champion. In fact after only two racing seasons the original Chrysler

Wee Don

Royal warranted replacement, by Minnetonka Boat Works with an identical model as before. One of only four remaining 1936 22’ Chris-Craft’s, the Wee Don, having only its upholstery replaced and little else altered since new, is a time capsule of not only Chris-Craft originality, but Minnesota boating history as well. Sitting on its original shipping cradle, so few boats can claim original stain and finish, which it’s greatest value is that left unrestored. A true museum piece from the Warner Collection, the Wee Don.

1927 Dodge 26’ 826 Watercar Runabout

The Watercar was the brainchild of Horace E. Dodge Jr., the son of one of the Dodge brothers whose manufacturing facilities were among the most productive in the nation. Dodge established the Horace E. Dodge and Company Boat Works in 1923 (later to become the Horace E. Dodge Boat & Plane Company). It was Horace Dodge’s intention to incorporate the mass production tools and ideas that made his family’s automotive production so successful. The name Watercar came from the concept to build a runabout as easy to own and operate as the Dodge automobiles of the time.

Weir Wind

Dodge brought in famous Naval Architect George Crouch, who had designed successful Gold Cup boats such as Baby Bootlegger, Miss Columbia, and Teaser. Dodge’s African mahogany Watercar’s are today considered the rarest of the “big four” Detroit boat builders (Chris-Craft, Gar Wood, Hackercraft, and Dodge) and to many the most collectible. Mecum is proud to offer as part of the Warner Collection, THREE 26’ Dodge Watercar’s. As the only three Watercar’s in private hands, it is something that may never be seen again. All three boats are in incredibly original condition,

one 1927 model 826 (seats 8, 26’ feet long) and two 1929 model 826s. The 1927 model, originally named the Weir Wind, was raced in the early Lake Champlain Race Boat Regatta’s. Originally powered by a 100hp Dodge-Curtiss OX-5 V-8 (not available) the Weir Wind currently is powered by a Chevrolet 283 V-8 engine.

1961 Greavette 18’ Fire Flash Single Cockpit Runabout

Greavette Boatworks was established in the mid 1920’s by Ernest Greavette and Charles Duke in Canada’s Muskoka region when they purchased a failing boat building business that they named Greavette and Duke. In 1931 the partners separated with Charles Duke creating Duke Boats and Ernest Greavette establishing Greavette Boatworks with new partner Ernest Wilson joining him in the endeavor. Naval Architect C. Douglas Van Patten joined the company in 1936 and designed racing boats as well as the eternally popular Streamliner and Sheerliner models. They would continue building these models for the next thirty years.

In the early forties Greavette Boatworks would construct anti-submarine vessels to be used by the Canadian Navy. One of the last Greavette models produced was the 18’ Fire Flash, a speedster-styled runabout with aft cockpit controls and hidden seat forward of the huge Chrysler 440 engine. Only three Fire Flash models were built. With woodwork fit and finish that is second to none, the Canadian built Greavette’s are well respected across North America.

1929 Sea Lyon 30’ 45 Triple Cockpit Runabout

Howard W. Lyon was Garfield Wood’s most successful boat dealer, not only in New York City, but worldwide. Around 1927, when Lyon had persistently requested Gar Wood produce a stronger, drier boat for his customers use around the Long Island, NY sound, he finally gave up on them and decided to go in to the boat building business for himself. First, in 1928, he contracted Hacker to build him a special line of 26-foot “Sea Lyon” runabouts. These debuted at the 1928 New York Motor Boat Show and were built, somewhat mysteriously, for only one year. Lyon had been tooling up for his own boat building operation on

Eclipse

City Island, New York, just outside downtown. It was the Lyon-Tuttle Shipyard, and the 1929 New York Motor Boat Show would be the debut of the new line of runabouts. The 1929 lineup included a 42’ Commuter, a 36’ Hydroplane Runabout, a 30’ Runabout, a 28’ Runabout, and a 24’ Runabout. All were built of white oak framework and Honduras mahogany, not coincidentally sharing much in common with the build methods of Hacker boats. The Sea Lyon runabouts were very expensive, and thus, relatively few were ever built. The 30-foot, model 45 offered top-of-the-line Sterling Petrel power, the 779 cubic inch 6-cylinder workhorse

had an “un-breakable” reputation and was a torque monster. Sea Lyon literature proudly exclaimed for the model 45 “Regardless of cost, no finer boat of its size could be built.” Howard Lyon’s boat company would see its demise along with so many others amidst the Great depression, and closed its doors in 1933. Only six production years of Sea Lyon boats have made them very rare, and very collectible. Less than a dozen Sea Lyon’s are known to exist today.

cubic inch 6-cylinder engine, the model 40 put up the same 40-42mph speeds as the 30’ model, in a more nimble package. The model 40 had a narrower beam, but higher crowned decks than that of its big sister, and to many, is considered equally as desirable.

1929 Hackercraft 26’ Dolphin Jr Runabout

Considered by many to be the most original, largely unrestored example of John Ludwig Hacker’s popular 26-foot runabout, the Lulu III is a thoroughbred. Originally ordered by Mrs. George (Lulu) Slimer of Cincinatti, Ohio, several unique features separate the Lulu III from her stock 26’ Hackercraft Dolphin Jr. counterparts. The Slimers special ordered her with the unique walk-around drivers seat (in place of the normal bench front seat), which made access to the engine much easier. Hand rails on the hatch covers in addition to the stock handles, and two additional step pads were specified, later

Lulu III

to become standard equipment in 1930. Mrs. Slimer raced her then new 26’ Kermath 200 powered Hackercraft extensively during the 1929 season in and around Cincinnati. In both the 1930 and 1931 Hackercraft sales catalogs, Mrs. Slimer is shown proudly displaying four race trophies on the Lulu III’s deck.

Hackercrafts were built to order, with some stock models built for dealership showrooms. Representing the highest quality craftsmanship, from the white oak frames to the Honduras mahogany hull, and costing $4,475 in 1929, the Lulu III is one of the most pedigreed boats available.

Known as an “early” or “Lima” Dart, Dart runabouts were originally built by the Indian Lake Boat Company of Lima, Ohio. From approximately 1923 through 1928, the name “Dart” was the name of the boat model, in January of 1928, the rights to the Dart name were sold and from that point forward, until production ceased in 1933, Dart boats were built in Toledo, Ohio. White Cap, featured here, is a Lima, Ohio built – Indian Lakes 26’ Dart Runabout. Characterized by

White Cap

its flat decks and raised coamings, its design was well ahead of its time in 1927.

Gangsters, Tommy Guns, and Dick Tracy – if he had a speedboat, it would have been the V.S.O.P. From any angle, the 1932 28’ Hackercraft looks mean – in the most flattering sense of the word. The 28’ Hacker was a slight departure form John Ludwig Hacker’s other models in the 1932 lineup. With a nearly plumb bow, and beam a full six-inches wider than other similarly sized runabouts, it had flare in the bow not matched by other manufactures until years later. The extra-low cut windshield paired with the Dietrich convertible top and pleated green leather upholstery is a menacing combination.

V.S.O.P. With the original Honduras planking still in excellent condition, the original six-cylinder engine (Sterling or Kermath) was re-powered with Chevrolet 454 cubic inch V-8 power. One of only four of this style known to exist, the V.S.O.P, priced at over $5,000 in 1932, is luxury speed boating at its finest.


HIGHLIGHTS 000

- Hackercrafts were known as the Steinway of boats - Triple Cockpits - Named the V.S.O.P. (Very Special Old Pale - a cognac reference) - Hull No. 609 - 6” wider beam than 26’-and 30’ Hacker’s - One of 4 of this style known to exist - Dietrich convertible top - Honduras mahogany topsides and deck - Green leather pleated upholstery - Arguably one of the best looking windshields ever used by Hacker - Modern Crusader 454 CI V-8 power - Sterling Petrel 225 or Kermath Sea-Wolf 225 original power (original not available) - Trailer included

1951 Richardson 33’ Launch

This 1951 33ft Richardson launch was built by the Port, formerly referred to as the Hamilton Harbor Commissioners. She was built at the marine dock yard, and there have been attributions to builder Cliff Richardson. This long deck launch is unique with her hard chine, V-bottom planinghull design, different from traditional launches, as this launch rides on top of the water. This hull design produces speed boat performance in a launch configuration. It was also the

Hamilton No. 4

hull style of long boats in the 1920 and 1921 Gold Cup Races; “Heldena” has a similar design. Powered by a Kermath Sea Wolf 225hp, 678 CI, overhead cam, 6 cylinder, dual ignition … this combination generates big torque at low RPMs. The steering arrangement in the elongated aft cockpit provides ample space; traditional Canadian cross hatch flooring, heavily upholstered “Captain and Companion” bucket seats, and a full seat aft make for very comfortable accommodations. The special mother-in-law cockpit forward

creates a stable, dry, heavy ride for all passengers. The windscreen is removable for full ventilation and clear view of the individual Honduras deck planks that feature (live) tongue and groove construction. Several Canadian launches (Ditchburn, Minet) have exceeded the 7 threshold. This is a rare opportunity to own a custom Canadian Launch with same DNA.


HIGHLIGHTS 000

- Named Hamilton No. 4 - Original Kermath Sea-Wolf 225 HP 678 cubic inch 6-cyl engine - Custom three axle trailer - From Jim Everle Collection - Hard chined, V-bottom - Originally a Hamilton, Ontario patrol boat - Five known to exist - Trailer included
