Description

Before I tell you about this Brochure, here is a little history.
Brothers Peter and Christ Thompson started 1904 using the family barn as a workshop building an anti-leak wooden canoe.

In 1912 they were joined by their four brothers: Edward, Adolph, Tom, Richard, and Ted. Their sister Hanna became the office manager. Another sister, Nina, also worked for the company as did her husband.

By the 1950ís they had two factories turning out wooden boats and canoes.
In 1966 Dietrich and Gambrill, Inc. headed by Saul Padek, bought the Thompson Brothers Boat Company ending over sixty years of Thompson family ownership. Padek declared bankruptcy one month later. Arrangements for paying creditors in full were made and monthly payments began soon afterward, the final payout was on 15 March 1970. 
By then Padek had had increased production by 300% and employment was up five fold. Mainly from the focus on Fiberglass boats. The last wooden Thompson rolled out of the doors in 1970.

1971 was the first year of Thompsonís all fiberglass line of boats. This 1971 Thompson Boat brochure is 8 1/2Ē x 11Ē in size and has 16 pages including the front and back covers. It has their whole line of fiberglass boats with the specifications like length, beam, draft, weight and options such as inboard or outboard Mercruiser motors.
This brochure is in great condition for itís age. It looks almost new! There is a slight fold on the bottom left corner of the cover but it is hardly noticeable. Itís 3Ē long and looks like a line on the back cover.
