 This Classic Boat is owned by
 John & Carolynn Thompson 

Big Thom’s homeport is on Table Rock Lake.

The Thompson’s are the third owners of this boat.  They purchased her in 2002 from the second owner who was a friend of the first owners. Originally it was Gray and white and named Gray Gull.  It mostly was used on Lake Leelanau near Grand Traverse Bay of Lake Michigan and Grand Traverse Bay in northern Michigan.

This 1963 Thompson Super Lancer has seen more water miles than most classic boats because of her frequent excursions on numerous rivers and lakes.

One great advantage of having an outboard powered pleasure boat is that it can provide pleasure all winter long on open water.  The above picture was taken on December 27, 2021, a sunny winter day on Table Rock Lake.
