Re: Boats on Flats


Kevin ,

Yes they did in Michigan, both out of Grand Rapids and Algonac(sp).

Search the C&O HS digital archives.  There are some good overhead pix of them with wooden craddles on flats traveling down eastern lakeshore of Lake Michigan somewhere.

Here is a question for you guys.  Do any of you guys happen to know if Cris Craft shipped their boats by rail?  I thoought I had seen pics somewhere of some wood boats loaded ob flatcars but I can't remember.  I thought that since I model in 1/8th scale that a wooden Cris Craft would look great loaded.
