The Pointer



Take a ride on The Pointer dinner boat and water taxi by visiting her at Stafford's Pier in Harbor Springs.

"Using vintage photographs by Virgil Haynes, Harbor Springs boat builder Steve Van Dam spent seven months creating an authentic restoration of The Pointer, including the green upholstered interior seating and side curtains. He added a beautifully designed compass rose table, ice storage area and sink to make the vessel a bit more yacht like.

As close as Mr. Van Dam can figure, The Pointer was a work boat built in Chassell, Michigan in 1934, with painted wood construction typical of Scandinavian design."
