I am looking for a picture or catalog page which has a 10 ft fiber glass Elgin dingy built for sears in the early 1950s . Before 1957. If anyone has a source of info, please let me know. Thanks

I found this on the world wide net ? I didn't see the year, but It may be the one near the bottom of the newspaper article "E"
Good article at the bottom too ! It may get you to where your next search takes you ?

Thanks. I have seen that page and read the article. Interesting history of angler boats. I am currently repairing the Elgin dingy I have had for a few years. I found it was an Elgin when I stripped the old paint. I took photos of the old logo which was painted on before I continued. The rear seat had a foam block underneath which I was trying to find if this was a factory install or something that was added later. It is a hard polystyrene framed with 1/4" plywood. After reading the article on angler (penn yan) boats, I checked the wood , transom is mahogany as is the gunnels. Seats are cedar. The original colors match those in the article. The boat measures 10 bow to stern.

Here are some pictures of the boat. i am currently working on the fiberglass repair. Once completed I will have to look at the gel coat condition and determine how much to repair. Structurally sound but not pretty.
