Here's just a small part of an archive I got into from a southern university.

Those sure are some nice looking boats.They were some fine craftsmen at Burger Boat. I would venture a guess
and say I bet over 95% of those Burger boats built in the Mid 30's to mid 40's are still in service to one capacity or another.

They are original in design. You can look at one and know it's a Burger right away. Like a great artist or musician with a distinct style they have a trademark look and are quickly identified as a Burger. There were other builders who made great boats,, some maybe even build heavier but they weren't Burgers. Whoever that guy a the drafting board was who drew out that first design was someone who I would loved to have met. To me he's equal to the guy who drew out the first Corvette.

The fact that you can take a Honda and pour a lot of money into it and make it as fast or faster than a Corvette means nothing. It's still just a car and they don't write songs about Hondas. Very much like the Burger in many ways.
