Return to Muskoka

A rainy day departure from Ingersoll led to a homecoming celebration in Gravenhurst for the iconic Miss Canada IV.  

Echoing the Bon Voyage Rib BBQ  thrown by Ingersoll, Gravenhurst's "Miss Canada IV Day"  featured Town Criers, speeches, and hundreds of spectators. But there was work to be done; on the morning of July 10, 2011, Miss Canada IV was finally freed from the frame that held her captive for 25 years and taken into our shop to undergo a complete restoration.  She was slated to be relaunched, complete with an original Rolls Royce Griffon engine, in the fall of 2012. 

The Town Crier announces the arrival of MCIV at Gravenhurst.

Owner Bobby Genovese accepts presentation.

MCIV is positioned on an angle to meet trailer with requirements.

Tipping Point.

She will stay in this position for the next 12 months.

Station supports were scrib fit to the thin deck to support her hull.

We certainly had a good turnout.

The next day the boat is loaded on a trailer destined for our
shop in Port Carling,

Yes...we did have room to flip her in the shop (4 inches to spare)

Over she goes.

We can clearly see the steps and running surfaces.
