Chilton Runabout by Chapin Boat Co. Chapin SC?


Recommended Posts

While on Church flood relief work last week in SC discovered a plywood runabout about 14-15' in restorable condition in a garage with an Evinrude Lark OB. Had a chrome "Chilton" script on the aft quarter.  Had a Chapin Boat Co. Chapin SC plate on the dash over the speedo.  Can't fine any Google info and just curious if anyone has any info on them.  Maybe 60's model with curved windshield, divided and upholstered front seat back, cable steering. Just curious?  Tks, Rick

Didn't have a camera but could have used my old phone but in a dark garage.  If I go back for more relief work will try. May try to contact the 81yr old owner, but he's pretty stressed over the flooding and loss of so much property.  R


Chick, This '59 MFG looks a bit bigger but is very similar in design & interior and probably same period.
