1929 28' GarWood "Baby Gar" Triple-Cockpit
ENGINE: Scripps 202
COMMENTS: Excellent restored condition. Here's your chance to own a piece of history. There are only 3 to 6 of this raised-deck model left in existence. "Ramona" was originally purchased by J.N. Rauleigh in 1929. He owned her for a short time before selling her to the notorious Purple Gang during the beginning of the great depression. They used her as a rum-runner to bring alcohol from Canada to Harsen's Island, Michigan. The police could not afford such a fast boat at that time. Ray Brown, owner of the Ramona Park Hotel in Harbor Spring, Michigan bought her from a widow who could not afford her hotel bill. He christened her "Ramona" and put her in service giving rides to his hotel guests. Most of the wood has been replaced, including the new decks, new bottom and new transom. Leather interior. Great attention to detail. The instruments were beautifully restored, the hardware has been re-chromed. The engine is the original, rebuilt Scripps 202. Triple-axle trailer with brakes included. New water-line cover.
