    I found an article from 1960 stating that Skagit Plastics built the Thundercheif. Bruce and I have been searching for it.. Another unknown Skagit surfaces. Clint

    The Thunderchief on Steamboat slough looks small next to that silverton.Looking at Roberts fishing boat is kinda slippery slope for a Skagit guy. He built a lot of nice boat that were good enough to still be compete fishing today.

    It would be nice to find a picture of this boat without having to pay someone to use it. I wonder how many photo's they got from us or fiberglassics for free.

    Sure is interesting looking. Your right looks like the hull was modeled off the 31 Saratogan.

    Agreed. I doubt they paid much if anything for that photo. Probably just knew someone who had it in a box somewhere...

    Here's another picture of the Thunderchief. 1960. Yes, this boat was out of the Saratogan mold with a cropped off stern.
    There was a sighting of the Thunderchief a year or so back. Can't remember who saw it. Bruce B.?

    Yes, Tim, think I emailed that pic to you, the pic is actually owned by another mystery club member.
    I found the boat in a youtube video posted by a kayaker navigating the Snohomish River system near Everett. Even though I'd only seen this picture, the shape of the cabin transition from the side to top and the windshield frame were "give aways". John's pictures from his cruise very much confirm this is the boat. I have tried to contact the owner but no success. Will try again.
    Want to take more pics !
