(Owned by Ron and Wilma Jelley)

Rawley, a 1964 Duke, 19 foot model, built in Port Carling, Ontario.. The engine is a 6 cyl 100 hp Interceptor. It has not been restored, just maintained. The Jelleys are the second owners and bought this boat in June of 1998.!

Enjoying the Association's High Point Tour, August 2008


"Florence" 18.6 ft. 1919 Disappearing Propeller Motor Boat
(Owned by Ron and Wilma Jelley)

This "Dippy" is the Uncle Sam model built in Port Carling, Ontario and powered by a 1919, 2.5 hp 1 cyl Kingfisher copper jacket engine.

The "Dippy" was bought in 1985, a cold October day, and made it in the water a 'few' years later in September 2002 in time for the "Dippy" Regatta at Sparrow Lake. She is still not 100% finished; not sure it will ever be done! It did win Best Dispro at the September 2003 ACBS Boat Show. Don't tell anyone, but there were only three "Dippys" there and one got best Canadian Boat. Still a milestone for Florence!


14 ft. 1956 Peterborough Comet
(Owned by Ron and Wilma Jelley)

Another "Woodie," this boat was built in Peterborough, Ontario, and is powered with a 1955 25 hp 2 cyl electric start Evinrude. It was purchased in July 2000. We have been using it since, but in the fall of 2003 it was in the garage and will be receiving some ribs. Doubtful that it will be ready for the 2004 season, however.


"Katie" 15 ft. 1960 Glastron Fireflite
(Owned by Wilma Jelley)

This is Wilma's Fibre-Glassic, powered by a 1961, 75 hp - 4 cyl Johnson.The Glastron was purchased in the fall of 2001. Wilma spotted her prize in a driveway in Smith Falls with a for sale sign on it. She dropped in to have a look and was hooked. A bit of negotiation and we towed it home. It was a bit of a job to find the 1960 75HP OMC outboard. (We ended up driving to Connecticut to pick the engine.) We had hoped to have it in the water for the 2003 Manotick show but it wasn't ready. However she did make it to the ACBS Show in Ottawa in September as shown here.


16 ft. 1900-1910 Kennebec Canoe
(Owned by Ron and Wilma Jelley)

This closed gunnel canoe was owner restored in 1994.
