The "Little Dipper" is custom built, electric powered boat, based on the famous Disappearing Propeller Boat popular in the first half of the 20th century in Canada and the US. These boats are the subject of a book entitled "The Greatest Little Motor Boat Afloat" (see one of the photos). They were powered by a small, usually single cylinder, gas motor, and they had a clever mechanism to raise the prop and shaft into the hull for beaching, and due to this feature they were nicknamed Dippers, or Dippys. Like this boat, most featured 3 full beam seats and one single aft seat for a 7 person capacity.

Little Dipper was built using offsets for one of the Canadian Greavette models. She is powered with a 110 pound thrust, salt water capable, 36 volt electric motor, which is removable for beaching or trailering. A bank of three sealed 12 volt batteries under the center deck, is charged with a built-in 120 volt marine 3 bank charger. The boat will operate for hours and has a range of more that 20 miles. Top speed is about 7 knots, but speed and range will depend on load and power used. I have taken the boat up the lake about 8 miles and back then cruised another hour, and later out for a moonlight cruise of another hour using the LED running lights, and had plenty of battery power remaining. The quiet electric motor is wonderful for a relaxing evening cruise. Dependable electric power requires no maintenance, has no fumes or hazardous fuel, and is economical! At the end of the day, just plug it in and it will be ready for another day of cruising in the morning.

No winterization is needed, so the boat is available and ready to go year round!

This boat has had light use and has always been stored under cover. It is in excellent condition.

Construction is lap strake of okume marine plywood, sealed with penetrating epoxy and bonded at laps with 3M 5200 for a strong and tight hull – NO LEAKS. The keel and frames are white oak, the deck is mahogany and ash, and the seats are mahogany. Rudder is white ash. Included are seat cushions, two life jackets, one throw cushion, LED Stern light with flag, one paddle, two fenders, bow and stern lines and one extra prop.
The trailer is a galvanized Load Rite single axle with recent tires, bearings, and LED lights. It is in excellent condition. Have titles for boat and trailer.
