Notes

This from ‘westcoastboat’:
“…the Ancom 23 was designed by my father Hans Denhertog in Hamilton, Ontario in the early 70’s and, as a teenager I helped him build the molds. The boat was originally called the Frolic 23 and went into production, along with a S&S Classic 31 and S&S Classic 37 in a boatyard in Burlington, Ontario. The original Frolic 23 sold for about $2000 new and many were built and delivered around Southern Ontario, although the company only lasted for about three years.”
Thanks also to Jack Gutter and ‘laxingirl’ for providing additional information.
