Summer 2018 at Otter Falls, MB

    I've owned it for about half a dozen years & intend to make a winter project out of it. I doubt that it'll end up as an "as new" restoration, but I intend to make it pretty as possible. It was well used by the time I bought it. It's serial number 5229. I was told that it was one of the last Cabinaires to be produced. That may or may not be correct information, but it does have a motor well at the transom, so it's one of the newer ones. That's the way it was produced.  

I managed to find a vintage Holsclaw trailer to go with it, & that's already been refurbished to look like an original. I've already acquired a 40 hp Evinrude motor & it's about the correct age to go with the Aroliner. I'll send more pictures as the project progresses to completion. I'm elated to have the boat, & I'm going to enjoy it even more when it's on the waters of the Winnipeg River.

Note: stern Motor Well not found in earlier models and dash board. Manual Wiper

Note lapstake pressure points and manual windshield wiper. Angular grab rail posts reappear after 20+/- years.
