My wife and I spent last weekend road tripping to Madison, Wisconsin to pick up a rare 1960-1961 Michigan Fiberglass Company-made 16′ Arrowhead (hull number 7023) from all around great guy Dennis Tweedale. According to Dennis he purchased the boat in 2010 from a man that had acquired the boat from a farmer that had been storing it for years. The new owner used it as a family ski and fishing boat for years until Dennis acquired it. Dennis contacted me about finding a new owner and I gladly, with my lovely wife’s blessing, accepted the gift and even joined me on a great fall color tour trip through northeastern Wisconsin and northern Michigan that included a lunch stop at Bucky’s in Berlin, Wisconsin.
This is my second Lake ‘n Sea 16’ Arrowhead acquisition in last 30 days so I will be concentrating on documenting and restoring these two beauties for the next few years instead of collecting.
