History


This boat was custom built by Cooper's Boatyard as a faithful reproduction of the original Miss Columbia in the mid 1990's for a collector by the name of Phil Sharples.

Phil was a large supporter of the classic raceboat hobby and had great attention to detail. It has been under single ownership since 2010 in the Muskoka region of Ontario and remains in excellent condition.

George Crouch's original Gold Cup racing designs dominated the Gold Cup and Contest circuit in the 1920's and 1930's.

Other notable boats he designed were "Baby Bootlegger" and "Teaser".
