Greavette became well known for these practical forward drive boats in the 1960's, and were the designs that lead to the modern fibreglass runabouts. At only 18', the boat has a large capacity for passengers and cargo.
"Betty" became a favourite 'run-around' boat for Paul & Mary Lou Little early on in their cottaging days. Many people in the Muskoka region prefer a "woodie" to get around opposed to a modern "plastic" boat.
After more than 50 years of service, the original bottom could no longer be repaired. Betty received a new Breen bottom, and total refinishing inside and out to bring her to "better than new" condition. She is now easily suited to provide another 50+ years of service with minimal maintenance.
