Reynolds Metal Company
2052 S. 9th St.
Making the transition from wartime production to the postwar period, Reynolds Aluminum offered a 12' aluminum utility boat model for recreational boaters.
Reynolds Metal Company also supplied aluminum to a number of boat manufacturers. According to an April 1957 Reynolds magazine ad, this company supplied Aero-Craft, Aqualine, Aqua-Queen, Arkansas Traveler, Blue Star, Cadillac, Crestliner, Cruiser Craft, DuraCraft, Duratech, FeatherCraft, Freeland, Grumman, Lone Star, Lowell, McKenzie, Meyers Sabre Craft, Naden Quality Line, Pioneer, Polar Kraft, Resorter, Rexcraft, Rich Line, Schweizer, Seamaid, Sea Nymph, Seth Smith, Sports-Kraft, Starcraft, Trailorboat, and Vio Holda Boats.
At the 1961 Chicago Boat Show, Reynolds showed an experimental 15' runabout. This boat was unique in that it featured a stretch-formed hull, made in two pieces and welded. The boat was made by the Reynolds product development department as a demonstration of the stretch-formed technique in hopes of attracting the interest of boat manufacturers (May 1961 Modern Metals magazine).
