I am seeking any history of....etc. Beaver Boat Company once located in Cape Girardeau, MO. that manufactured the 17' "Classic Beaver Custom" Inboard ski boat. I am restoring one that was built in 1965. It has a 392 cu. in. Chrysler Hemi engine from a 1958 Chrysler Imperial. The engine was installed by Beaver Boat and Engine Company of Detroit, MI. There is no company information on Beaver Boat and Engine Company that I have been able to find online. There is one picture (see below) of a Classic Beaver Custom that I found on the old Fiberglassics site but the administrator has disabled write access. The other pic's are the one I am restoring. I will greatly appreciate any input on one or both companies or contact with anyone that had or still owns one of these boats.

TX, Ken

Ken,
My wife and I own the Beaver in your first picture. That was taken at the 2015 Chesapeake Bay Chapter annual ACBS boat show at St. Michaels. I too seek any information regarding these boats. I have had no luck so far. I did find an Olds engine from Beaver Boat and Engine Company supposedly built for racing. We have a 283 Chevy engine and now aluminum headers.
We purchased the boat in Holland, Michigan ~2012.
