  • Studebaker boats

    We have an inquiry from some folks who just found a Studebaker boat. I have seen articles about them in the past but just can't put my finger on it. Anyone have any history on them?

    There is one listed on boattrader.com. Located in Fl. That is all I found.

        We've talked about Studebaker boats before on this board, but I can't find a thread to link to.
        If I remember right - they have nothing to do with South Bend Studes.

                IIRC there was a discussion about them and somebody posted a photo of one showing what one would think was the rear window of C/K being used as a windshield. It was not uncommon for Studebaker to sell parts to makers of other things. The elevator trim tab on all Piper Cherokee and some Commanche aircraft were from Studebaker. They were mounted overhead between the two front seats.

                    Bill; do you mean THE CONTROLS for the elevator trim tabs, were in the cabin? Because the trim tabs are on the elevator part of the tail!

                        when my Hawk was new grandpa had a boat he hauled around with it. it had the backglass of Hawk for a windshield also had tail fins, it was red so he had it painted to match the hawk. all his boys talk about it. the boys were out in it on lake michigan skiing and swamped it and it sank. as far as anyone knows it is still there. i wish someone would have got a picture of them together.

                            Ofcourse inside, I thought I said it was overhead between the two front seats.
