    Studebaker Fishing Boat?

    Any of you guys know if Studebaker made 15' fishing boats in 1958? A guy I work with says he has one and wants to sell it. Along with a 18hp motor and trailer.

    Raymond Loewy designed this Dorsett boat around 1958, but there was no connection with Studebaker that I know of.

    And no 18hp motor would push this thing!

    A guy named Studebaker made the boats, his only connection with the car company was the family name.

    I seem to recall there was a company that made Studebaker boats but it was related to our Studebaker founders only by ancestral lineage.

    As soon as you find a product you like they will stop making it.

    I'll have to dig around to find it, and then find someone with a scanner~ BUT~
    about 9-12 years ago I remember seeing a boat not far from here that looked as though a portion of a '53-'61 coupe was used- the boat had the backglass, rear 1/4 windows and roof grafted onto it. Sure looked good, but really odd...

    I shoulda' bought it!!! [:0]

    Steve, the one he is selling is aluminium. Boat, trailer and motor - asking $1,000.

    Dont know where you are but that would be a good deal here in upstate SC for a sound 15' aluminium boat ready to use.You could even do a bit of work on it and be OK.I would love to have it myself just because its a studebaker but simply cant justify another boat as the two we have sit most of the time anyway.Good luck with it,Steve
