All are quite cool. I saw one of those cabinaire boats near me. I never saw one before. Yours makes the second I've seen. How rare is that boat? Looks well built and very functional too. Nice collection you have. I like how you suspended that boat to borrow the trailer. Also like the addition to keep rain/sun off. Great ideas on here! Thanks for sharing.
Aroline boats were built in Winnipeg Manitoba from the late 1940's to the 80's I believe. The Cabinaire was one of many models produced. They still turn up now and then and are most likely to be found in the Manitoba area which is not that far from you.
Thanks for the history. I was last in Winnipeg back in about 1966. Caught a nice 5.5 pound smallmouth there as a kid. Last vacation with all 4 of my grandparents together. I think that cabin boat would be perfect for 2 on an all day fishing excursion. ... and looks small and light enough for me the grandpa to load by myself. Every time I pass by that boat, I think it is pretty sweet and unique!
