“What on earth were you thinking?” seemed to be the most popular response when friends first laid eyes upon my latest purchase; a 57′ Carri Craft named â€˜The Aristocat’.
I’m glad David managed such a successful rebuild. From a sunken and scrapped mess of a hull, to a boat they enjoy. A true labor of love.
Saw a reference to Merton’s on one of the builder’s mailing lists. Hadn’t seen them before, but looks like they have some good stuff if you need supplies.
We specialize in the supply of fiberglass, resins, non-corrosive fasteners,and marine paints and compounds for boat construction and repair. We package these materials to order and ship daily via U.P.S. or common carrier. Our customers are building and repairing all types of craft ranging from strip canoes, kayaks, and rowboats to larger power and sail boats and commercial lobster boats, fishing, and work boats.
This is a really neat site covering a different class of classic boat. A lot of the "classics" pages totally ignore the many, many fiberglass boats that many of us grew up with. Often these boats are what introduced us to boating. You may have fond memories, or you may be glad to put those boats behind you, but either way, I think this page is worth a look.
I especially enjoyed the photo galleries… make sure and check out "Chicken & the egg".
Welcome to FiberGlassicsÂ®
In July 1998 this site began an attempt to recognize the style and creativity of the original fiberglass boat designs from the 50’s & 60’s, plus capture the spirit of a time that has since past. This site honors the pioneering minds that conceived and created these beautiful… and never to be made again fiber glass boats. Within this site, you will find information on old fiberglass boats. There are many sections. All brochures, pictures and information is FREE.
