The Foxy and the Foxy II were excursion boats that operated from Weirs Beach and Lakeport from the early 50’s through the mid 1960’s. In Weirs Beach, the ticket booth was located adjacent to the Half Moon Penny Arcade, as can be seen in this circa 1960 night-time photo.
Here is the only color photo available of the Foxy. Here she is seen close to the Weirs Beach public docks.
Here is a very interesting brochure for the Foxy. Notice: 1) the drawing of the ticket booth, which matches well with the night-time photo; 2) the logo for Northland Skis, which were manufactured in Laconia. Northland was much better known for its snow skis than its water skis. 3) The “foxy” bathing beauty, seen waving near a beach umbrella. A similar beauty was used for the cover of the 1954 Weirs Beach Chamber of Commerce brochure.
Here are a couple of advertisements for the Foxy.
Here is a souvenir ticket for the Foxy.

Owner and Captain Carl Wallace passed away in the mid-1960’s, bringing an end to the Foxy boats.
