Thread: Historic Wooldridge Pictures

  1. #161


    In 1983 Gordon came through the doors of Wooldridge Boats,and bought a Classic Inboard Jet boat from Glen. 34 years later he came back, it was time for anextensive refit. But Gordon was firm onthe fact that he wasn’t yet ready to let his beloved boat go! So after much deliberation it was decidedthat the Chevy 6.2 DI engine with the Hamilton 212 jet would be the way to go. After the many upgrades he now has a boatthat is performing better than the day it was new. It’s always encouraging to see a customer’senthusiasm for their boat still burning strong over 30 years later.

    You could own your own piece of history. Here is a 1976 23’ Wooldridge built by my uncle Bruce after my Grandfather retired, My Uncle Bruce and my cousins continued to build boats in Grants Pass with his sons, While my dad Bob set up the boat building operation here in Seattle. This Classic Wooldridge 23’ Welded hull is powered by twin Mercury 115HP Jets. The boat is a true barn find, the boat is said to be in excellent running condition. He is asking $10k. If you have any interest in this boat, call Joe at (479) 866-4342. The boat is currently in Arkansas. This boat is similar to the one my uncle Bruce built for grandpa to run Hells Gate on the Fraser in 1975.

    Glen Wooldridge guiding a trip down the Rogue River. Over time he had the chance to take many celebrities and presidents down rivers. This trip it was Truman Bradley. Truman stared in many movies of the day, but his radio announcing is probably what he is best known for. The Frank Sinatra Show, The Red Skelton Program and The Burns and Allen Show, to name a few. Also notice the camera mounted on the bow, possibly the first selfie captured on film! Ok, maybe not.
