Pardon Me by David Kunz and Bill Simpson

"Lyon built her; Lock never used her; Beck ran the hell out of her; Lewis just donated her.

"But this is just the tip of Pardon Me’s iceberg. Four decades swept by before the extraordinary Hutchinson runabout ended up at Clayton’s Antique Boat Museum in 1986. For nearly three of those decades, she languished in a dark boat house on the St. Clair River in Michigan and went by the unheralded name Lockpat III."

"One-of-a-kind runabout, a truly unique watercraft designed by one of the greatest naval architects in the world, the story that follows is a closer look into her complicated past. Pardon Me tells the story of the world’s largest runabout, and her colorful owners.”   [Excerpt from "Pardon Me" Pg. 7]

Filled with history of the owners of Pardon Me as well as photographs and captions telling the story of this beautiful boat now part of the Antique Boat Museum's Collection.
