Antique Beetle Cat at "small boat weekend"

Lonnie Black, of Avon Park, took his antique 12-foot fiberglass Beetle Cat to the “small boat weekend” May 6 in Cedar Key though he opted not to put it in the water because of the high wind and his sail was getting old.

“This boat was built in 1947. This is [one of] the first production fiberglass sailboats ever built,” he said. “This boat is out of the first run of boats built by Carl Beetle. He called it a Beetle Boat Swan.”
