1935 Gar Wood Speedster "MISS BEHAVE"

The 1934 prototype of the speedster was the inspiration of Phil Wood, Gar Wood’s younger brother, and was a modification of the standard 16-foot split cockpit runabout hull.  The prototype came to the attention of Frederick Bourne, who was at the time Commodore of the Thousand Islands Yacht Club.  He was looking to continue the sport of gentleman’s racing in the Thousand Islands and encouraged a few of his fellow yacht club members to join with him to establish a fleet of Gar Wood Speedsters.  Miss Behave was delivered to Bourne in the summer of 1935, and was the first in the fleet of gentleman’s racers that raced in the Thousand Islands.
