BURCHCRAFT BOATS:---Standard Outboard Models. MATERIAL & CONSTRUCTION: The construction of the original modles of the Burchcraft boats by a patented process of bending, is a revolutionary new technique of framing-planking. This is perhaps the first wooden boat, the dug-out excepted, in which no vertical ribs are used. The hull ia made of two pieces of Marine Plywood; i.e., one piece on each side, extending from the keel to the gunwale, forming the bottom and sides. The stern piece, or transom, is made of eleven- ply Marine Plywood. The keel piece, gunwale, and chine strips are made of hand selected first quality bending oak. The trim of the boat is of selected grain oak, pleasing to the eye, and of lasting quality. A liberal amount of screws are used throughout the boat. The few outside seams are permanently sealed. This construction doubles the margin of safety, and is a quality of construction expected only in the most expensive custom work. The Unique design and expert use of materials possessing high modulus of resilience account for Burchcraft's permanent ruggedness, its thrilling behavior and resilient strength. This system of con- struction uses no calking whatever; condensation is nil, and therefore the bilge area is dry. SEASONAL CALLING OPERATIONS SO COMMON WITH CONVENTIONALLY CONSTRUCTED BOATS ARE ELIMINATED BY THE EXCLUSIVE AND PATENTED FEATURES USED IN BURCHCRAFT. The lines are sweet and seaworthy, giving the boat sur- prising fleetness, YET STABILITY AND EASE Of MANUVERING NEVER BEFORE ASSOCIATED WITH BOATS OP THIS SPEED. The afloat trim, under all conditions, at starting and through crusing to max- imum speeds is astonishing. Even though seating from one to six passengers, varying speeds do not alter the trim;--a most remarkable characteristic. The stressed Marine Plywood used in the skin of the craft adds greatly to the structural strength of the boat, yet gives the resiliency necessary for comfort in rough and choppy water. The Burchcraft performs better in heavy going at all speeds, including maximum, than the conventionally constructed types of craft. The outside chine strips which act as spray rails and bumpers, afford freedom from spray and free water, adding years of trouble-free service. FOR FAMILY USE the Burchcraft is all that can be desired, because of its margin of safety and its robust sturdiness, coupled with speed and beauty, which gives a feeling of pride in ownership never experienced in craft of this class.
