DEC 6 - 04
I enjoy your site, incredible variety of pictures and info. I am
including a picture of my Boatel Trailmaker, I am not sure what year it
is, the decal on the front was patented in 1964 but I believe the sled
is a 65 or 66, 8 hp kohler, reversing trans, original throttle system
was actually 2 automotive vacuum canisters (Fomoco) with a piece of hose
between them, the track is belting with channel irons bolted on, the skis
appear to be galvanized culvert material, the backrest for the seat has
a Boatel thunderbird logo on it, the only one I have ever seen like it.
My father traded a horse for this sled in 1972, the horse died 6 months
later. I have seen about a dozen sleds like this but no 2 seem to
be exactly the same, different engines or accessories etc. This picture
was taken in the Black Hills of South Dakota 2 years ago, I doubt
a sled like this has ever been seen up there before. It is a real
conversation piece and draws a crowd in a hurry. Enjoy S.A.D. - Steven
