I believe that is Ethyl Ruth which was named Chloe for a number of years. It belonged to my uncle Bob Henry who kept it in Hague on Lake George.ReplyDelete
He used to take me out in it frm time to time over my mother's howls of protest.
Some olld footage of this and other fast boats owned by Henry's on lake George
Me and my father about 1:15, chloe/ethyl Ruth at about 1:35 when my uncle owned it there were no engine hovers because he had replaced the packard with a monster Allison aircraft engine.
