SEA SLEDS IN FLORIDA

THE KNAPP SEA SLED DEALER SERVICE NETWORK

__________________

One of the objectives J. P. Knapp had for the Sea Sled Company when he purchased it in 1924 was establishing a professional sales force and producing professional sales literture. With his capital, contacts and press operations those plans were easily met. He also wanted to provide a professional dealer network complete with service facilities. This article from the March 1927 issue of Motor Boating shows these were well under way before the stock market crash of '29 changed course for a most innovative boat.

One of Florida's Finest Homes In 1927 Is Very Similar To The Fort Lauderdale One J. F. Knapp Purchased In The 1930's Complete with a dock in the backyard.
