From Peter Hunn's Book:
Tail Fins and Two-Tones: The Guide to America's Classic Fiberglass and Aluminum Runabouts NOTE: As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

Caption reads: This late 1940's model "AD" is [the] deluxe version of the firm's cornerstone 12-foot rowboat. Add a period 10-hp Mercury Lightning and you've got the makings of an official American Power Boat Association Class "BU" stock outboard utility racer. Fit her with the classic 5.4-hp, four-cylinder Evinrude Zephyr fishing motor she's wearing here and this Aero-Craft can't be beat for trolling.

The caption reads "Lee Holland saying goodbye at the end of the meet..."

Here are a few pictures of Lee Holland's boat at the 2014 Tomahawk AOMCI meet. It's the one in Peter Hunn's book. I included the Serial plate -- not sure if you can confirm from that what year it is. I heard that Lee had sold the boat to someone at Tomahawk but I can't confirm that.
