Trying to gather as much information as I can in regards to a boat that I will be receiving from my father.
What my dad knows about the boat:
1957 or 1958 (approximately 15' long)
Bell Boy Ballerina (Hull and deck style is identical to Banshee)
Inboard (4 cylinder Model 70 Grey Marine with Paragon gearbox)
Only 3, possibly 4 ever made
- 1 Blue and White (My fathers)
- 2 Red and White
- 1 Yellow and White (maybe)
Purchased in late 70s in Lake Whatcom area of Bellingham, WA
My father is the third owner
Mentioned seeing another inboard sitting in a strawberry field around Smith Road in Bellingham area.
While talking to him, he also mentioned something about a stock 5" square fuel filter.
Story I recall while growing up was that these boats were prototypes and there was an accident on Lake Whatcom which stopped the production. (truth or fiction, I don't know).
