HISTORY

Knotty was originally delivered to Walloon Lake, Michigan in July 1937.  She now resides at the home of Paul and Christine Vellani, on Buckeye Lake just outside of Columbus, Ohio.  She was purchased by the Vellani’s from the Zeiger family in 2019, her previous owners were the Durivage family .  In 2005-2006 Zimmerman Boat Works, Matt Zimmerman, completed an extensive refurbishing.  She went in again in 2019 for a “freshen up” of varnish and chrome.
