Gar Wood Society History
Since the 1970’s the Gar Wood Society has been issuing Gar Wood Production Verification Certificates. The information is collected directly from original factory documents of the Gar Wood Boat Division of Gar Wood Industries. The data on these documents are taken from the most authentic sources available and should be considered factual in every way. In 2010 the factory documents from the Gar Wood Boat Division were donated to the Antique Boat Museum by Gar Wood author historian, and Antique Boat Museum Trustee Anthony S. Mollica, Jr.. The Antique Boat Museum continues to provide research on Gar Wood Boats as well as issuing Gar Wood Certificates.
