History and Restoration of the Margie (Ken Valk)
The gasoline powered scale yacht “Margie” is one of the
most unique and innovative models that was ever
designed and constructed. Its hull was patterned after
a World War II John L. Hacker Cabin Cruiser and was
scaled down by Don Lyons. Master Craftsman Virgil
Gustavino of The San Francisco Model Club originally built her in the early 1940’s.
However, it was Ed DeGear, Margie’s first and only owner who is credited with giving
Margie many of her advanced mechanical engineering components.
