Nancy Lee


NANCY LEE Built on Sand Island in the late 1930s by Evan Christensen, for Elvis L. Moe. The 37 ft. wood-hulled vessel was equipped with a Wolverine marine gas engine, turning a 28 inch diameter wheel straight drive. In the early 1940s Moe re-powered with a Chrysler Crown marine engine with a 3:1 reduction gear, turning the 28 inch wheel. The boat was sold to Ole Olsen in the late 1940s. Olsen sold the boat to Martin Erickson in about 1954. Erickson sold the boat to its final owner, who moved it to West Duluth, where it eventually burned.
