They started in the early 1900’s in St Joseph, Michigan. It was the towns largest employer and cranked out 600 boats a year. They had sales offices in most US cities with offices from Chicago to China. They also were the first company to hire women at the start of World War II. After the war they kept building boats and sales were not good. They closed doors in 1948.
