1958 Thompson Off-Shore 18’

Owned by Martin and Barbara Thompson
“N” 2 Deep was originally in the Great Lakes Area in Michigan. She was purchased by a man in Maine and now she is in Missouri.
The Thompson is wood lapstrake with mahogany deck, dash, rails, seats and transom. The motor is 1960 Mercury Kiekhaefer 500. The motor was purchased out of a large Mercury Collection in Michigan.
We bought the Thompson online from the owner in Greenwood, Maine in January, 2013. We brought her home in May, 2013 and spent two seasons on Lake Viking and one season at Lake of the Ozarks.
Then she went off to Rice, Minnesota for restoration by Dave Watts at the Little Rock Boat Works. The interior work was done by Ken Biggs at K&S Upholstery in Smithville, MO.
The reason for the name is because we have a considerable investment in her.
Now, she is ready for fun!!!
