Travel through the decades in motorboating in America from 1890 to 1968 with historian F. Todd Warner. Look at evolution in design, power, production, and personalities with local to national builders including Chris-Craft, Hacker Craft, Gar Wood, and Dodge. 

Todd has actively been buying, selling, and restoring vintage boats since the mid-1970s. He has personally owned more than 1,000 vintage boats. He is a leading authority in the vintage boating field, proficient in the history and authenticity of well-known and obscure boat builders and designers. Todd frequently lectures on the historical perspective of restoration procedures for vintage watercraft and has been called upon to be an expert witness in cases involving wooden boats.
