We had a Thompson wooden boat with a 58 Lark 35 when I was a kid. It was narrow, 14, maybe even 13 ft long. Fairly primitive, smooth - non lapstrake sides. I remember the rear seatback was latched in the upright position with a nailcatch type latch (funny the things that stay in our minds). It was a front steer, single deck open runabout. My guess would be late 40s - early 50s vintage. Dad traded it in when I was 4 in 1961 for a new 14 ft Thunderbird because he thought it was unsafe (he probably found out what was really unsafe when I got him in my Switzer with a 235 Evinrude decades later). Anyone have an idea what model it could have been, or have any pics? I remember it was a cool looking old boat.

Sorry Paul can't say that I can help on this one but I'm sure Thompsonboat "Andreas" can help.

Andreas, over to you.
