Glas-Steel Boats

North Star Marine Co.

600 W. Tenth Ave.

Monmouth, Illinois

This company was a subsidiary of Neil W. Ekblaw's Monelle Corporation. It built boats up to 1958 when William J. Horvath's Glastex Co. made a deal to build boats at the Monmouth factory. Ekblaw was also president of North Star Marine Sales. The Glas-Steel power boats were designed and built with a tubular steel keel and frame supporting a fiberglass hull. This was similar to the Glastex Co.'s Speed Queen boat construction which used aluminum channel for stringers but plywood frames.

No original literature is available at present. More information will be added as it is made available by people like you!
