At the 2018 Keels & Wheels Concours d’Elegance, held May 4-5, 2016, at the Lakewood Yacht Club in Seabrook, Texas, Bob and Charlotte Shadduck of Annandale, Minnesota, displayed their 1936 Greavette 23-foot Dictator Miss Muskoka.

Built in Gravenhurst, Ontario, these boats were ordered and then built to the owner’s specifications. Each of the nine hulls built were different from each other; no two were alike. Miss Muskoka is hull number seven.

Bob and Charlotte offered a big “thank you” to Mike Windsor of Windsor Boatworks Limited of Gravenhurst, Ontario, for his countless hours of guidance to make the restoration as correct as possible. Apparently, everyone did a fantastic job because the Greavette won the “Best in Show – Small Boat” award at the 2018 Keels & Wheels Concours d’Elegance.
