Interesting, some more info... Looking close at the bow plate, says "Herter's Flying Fish". I just did a quick check of Peter Hunn's "Tail Fins and two Tones" the definitive authority on thees period runabouts and see only a small photo of this model boat (page 155) but no info as to maker. For that matter, no listing of "Herters" as a maker, I guess that they were only distributers. So who made these boats?
