Above, front to back, a Hafer rowboat, a post-war runabout, against the wall is an unfinished Hafer hull donated by Mark Jensen, then a small outboard, and finally, another post-war runabout.

Above, this gorgeous Hafer runabout belongs to Mark Jensen, and is on loan to the museum.

This 1937 Hafer outboard was ordered by Harold Sorenson, and donated to the Maritime Museum by his daughter, Audrey Sorenson Allen. This boat is featured in the Glenn Hafer bio section of this web site along with a photo of Glenn and father John Hafer building it.
