Scarlett is a 26′ Lyman Cruisette owned by Antique and Classic Boat Society members Frank and Brenda Baker.
Scarlett is powered by a Chrysler 318. Along with her pictures, this story was registered with their ACBS membership:
I purchased this boat from the son of the original owner in Toledo, Ohio. She is docked near Lakeside, Ohio and is used for fishing and cruising around the islands of Western Lake Erie. She has undergone an almost complete restoration at Classic Marine in Vickery, Ohio by Dwight Davis. I owned a restored 21′ Lyman prior to this one but preferred the ride of the 26′ Lyman in the Lake Erie chop. Scarlett is also used to give Wooden Boat rides from the Lakeside pier during the summer Chautauqua Season at Lakeside.
Frank Baker reports, “I have recently added another Lyman to our fleet, a 1957 23’ Lyman. It appears from the hull number 1003 that it was the third Lyman 23’ ever built. She underwent replacement of 14 hull planks, a number of ribs and new keel and knee this winter by Dwight Davis’s Classic Marine in Vickery, Ohio. I have been doing some work also on new storage compartment floors, seat repairs and brightwork.
