Where was my tri cabin made?

Post by paskyhawk » Mon Sep 03, 2018 9:33 pm

Hey Gang

Need some help, we were invited to an antique boat show and I would like to give some data about the boat. Is there a way of telling where the boat was manufactured? Few pics attached.

Thanks
Rich

Check with Bob at Beacon marine . Many were made in Lancaster Pa. But I think some were made in Canada ?

Here is what I found out "Most likely at the Shepherd Plant at Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario only a few TriCabins were made in the states." So likely it was Made in Ontario .

Thanks, I wasn't sure if the Shepherd plant closed in 1979
