Dart Boats at Toledo and Pit-In-Bay (1928)

Excerpts of Toledo and Indian Lake built Dart runabouts romping about the Maumee River near Toledo, and Lake Erie near Put-In-Bay. This 8mm film footage is from the Admiral Webb C. Hayes II family. Hayes was the grandson of President Rutherford B. Hayes and the head of the Dart Boat Company, which built quality mahogany speed boats in Toledo, Ohio until the early 1930's, when they were claimed by the Great Depression.
