MISS BEHAVE

Since 1926, the owner of the Lifesaver Candy Company Ed Noble had been speeding on the St. Lawrence River in his famous 33' Baby Gar, "SNAIL."  One day he told Gar Wood that he only wanted a small, sporty racer that would be like a water version of the popular European sports cars.  Wood's answer was high performance sixteen footer with 2 seats aft of the engine that he called the "Speedster."   Noble fell in love with the boat and the first dozen produced were sent to the St. Lawrence River for Noble and his friends.  His speedster was named the "Miss Behave" and others in the group were called "Miss Adventure", "Miss Chief", and "Miss Conduct."

Speedster racing became a regular event on the St. Lawrence River right to the start of World War II.  The 16 foot Gar Wood speedster is, pound for pound, the most valuable classic production speed boat in the world.   Today, the original "Miss Behave" is in the Thousand Islands Shipyard Museum.
