FOUND IN 2002 FOR $300

Jagar II was purchased on July 30, 2002. My friend Mike Frazier called me and told me to go look at this little speed boat that was for sale for $300.00 that was sitting next to a garage in our neighborhood.

RESTORATION & AWARDS

It started its complete restoration on March 1, 2006 by Jack Elrlich of New Vincent Boats in Portland, OR. Jack was the amazing restorer that was the master finisher behind Bob Tindle’s 36-foot Sentimental Journey that won “Best Gar Wood” three years in a row at the Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance!! Ten years later and a big bucket of cash poured into this little 11.5-foot Gentleman’s Racing Runabout R-Class 1955 Calkins.

ALMOST FINISHED!

Our little Race Boat is ready for its Maiden Voyage coming this September 12, 2020 on the Deschutes River in Bend, OR, in the Sunriver Area. September 12th is my grandson Jagar’s birthday who’s the boat’s namesake!! We are confident that the completely restored 1956 Mercury 10 HP equipped with a sharp pitched Bronze Racing propeller will push this little Racing Runabout at least 30 to 35 MPH. Happy Boating!! Cheers!!
