The foundation for Spencer Boats was laid in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan where John Brandlmayr grew up, went to University, and developed his interest and skills in the design and building of things such as boats and aircraft. It was here that lasting friendships were formed such as the one with Phil Hantke who, many years late after the war, became a partner in Spencer Boats Ltd.
The following is an excerpt from tapes and notes left by John and which outline the philosophy which he brought to his designs and to their fruition:
"For me the principal interest of boats has always been design. As a youngster building model airplanes, I worked out designs that could be built from the materials readily at hand. I found a particular satisfaction in applying scientific principles and art to the design and construction of a sailplane and enjoyed the considerable amount of general study it required. Building some iceboats and a sailboat at that time seemed like an extremely simple proposition. An enterprise that has given me a great deal of satisfaction and invaluable understanding of boatbuilding is Spencer Boats Ltd. which, together with Phil Hantke, a very good friend, was started in 1952 to build eighteen- foot plywood cruisers and runabouts.
