Very Rare Classic Boat, own a piece of history.

1949 16' Gar Form inboard

During WWII Gar Wood Industries was building fiberglass radar dishes for the Navy. Late in 1946 the Navy canceled the contract and let GWI keep the equipment.

Gar Wood could see that fiberglass had possibilities. GWI Board of Directors didn't want to cheapen the image of their wood boats and the project was killed.

Gar Wood loaded up the GWI 's design department for a weekend in Florida and the Gar Form was born. Gar Wood Jr was put in charge and built boats in the back of the Gar Wood plant until he moved to Tulsa in 1948.
Gar Form was the very first FG boat!
