Won at a boat in a raffle from Cowichan Maritime Museum last October, this boat has only been in the water once. It’s a beautiful 10 ft Lapstrake Acorn Dinghy with 9 ft Oars. The value placed on the boat by the builder was $8000.00. The owners already store an 18ft Tracker boat and only have a single car garage, so sadly it needs to go.
Built in 1957 by Chivers Boatworks of Victoria, B.C.
Carvel planked red cedar on oak frames
55hp, Chrysler Nissan diesel 4-cyl engine installed new in 1977
Boat purchased on December 31, 1965 out of Canoe Cove by current owner. It was used during summer months out of Qualicum Beach between 1966 and 1982.

The last one dated April 1982.
