Wise Boat Works Circa 1920's

With the Lake Dora Boat Show coming up soon, I thought that I would share a great picture that I got from Fred Wise in Mt. Dora.

Here is the boat works when it was first opened. This is sometime in the mid 20's. A very sleek launch with painted sides and varnished deck tied to the dock.

Here is the crew, made up of Swedish carpenters that came south from the plant in Minnesota.
