Spring Lecture Series: “Resurrecting the Dart Boat Company”

In the Roaring Twenties the desire for fun, frivolity, speed, and sport set the stage for the production of the mahogany runabout. The Indian Lake Boat Company in Lima, Ohio developed a line of fast runabouts with an evocative name— Dart. The Dart line of boats attracted the attention of investors in Toledo, and in 1928 the Dart Boat Company moved production. Now, eighty-five years later, current owners Scott and Dave Ramsey will speak of the Dart Boat Company.
