My name is Brian Fogarty. I have had an interest in wooden boats all my life. It has been filled with boating memories, going boating when I was only one month old. I purchased my first boat in 2005, a 1955 Wagemaker Wolverine. Once belonging to friends of our family, my boat “Brian Weigh” has been in only three families, through three generations of boating enthusiasts. When the first owner died, the boat passed to his son, who, fortunately for me, thought I was the right person to care for the boat when he couldn’t use it. “Brian Weigh” was in good shape when I got her- so basically some sanding, refinishing and some new cushions and it was like new again. I kept the original 1955, 25hp Evinrude that was original to the boat. Some new plugs and fresh gas and it fired right up.I am still using the original six -volt electrical system that came with the boat- and there is no key- just a pushbutton starter and choke. The boat drives from right rear seat which works well for me- one of my favorite features.So, I have put together some information and pictures about the Wolverine, Cadillac, and Elgin boats. I hope you like my new website. I would like to have your pictures and story about your Wolverine, Cadillac, and Elgin boats. Our club will be named the "Antique and Classic Wagemaker Wolverine Boats Society" in the ACBS Directory for a Marque Club. If you have a Wolverine, Cadillac,and Elgin boats you are already members of our club.
If you have any questions on our Wagemaker Wolverine boats. Our website is a non profit organization. Our goal is to preserve and protect our past history of our Wolverine,Cadillac, and Elgin boats. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I can help you anyway. I am not in the position to state what your boat is worth. Every boat has its own unique features. You should take it to a restoration shop for them to appraise. Our website is for teaching, comments and research purposes only. My Facebook is a nonprofit, educational, teaching, comments and research purposes only.
If you having any problems on my other website called the "wagemakerwolverineboats.webs.com" because it is frozen, I am very sorry for any inconvenience.
Please resubmit your pictures to this website.
