The boat is a 1953 - 15'6" Peterborough Canadian. It was named "Miz Beaver" after a character in Walt Kelly's "Pogo", a satirical political cartoon of the 1950s, and in honour of our family emblem.
The boat was purchased from and restored by Ken Lavalette in the fall of 2003. Due to considerations of convenience, safety and caring for the environment, the motor chosen was a new Nissan Four Stroke, 30hp. and the transom was fortified accordingly.
