The weather for the 2011 Lake Hartwell Antique Boat Festival in South Carolina has been a challenge, with severe thunderstorms moving through the area. But thanks to the hard work of Robert Miracle, we were able to capture some great images of a few antique & classic boats throughout the weekend.
“Ju$t 1 More” is a very nice 1949 17’6″ Century Seamaid owned by John & April Heiderich from Jamestown, IN. This classic blond deck Seamaid is powered by a 160 HP Grey Marine 6 using this rare and unusual dual side exhaust system for increased horsepower. Woody Boater and Robert Miracle have gathered together a number of great images of this boat from Lake Dora and Lake Hartwell, and we are planning to do a feature story on her with the help of John Heiderich later this month – so stay tuned.
For any of our regular viewers, you know how impressed we were with the performance and versatility of “Kabot’s Habit” Paul & Karen Harrison’s Chris-Craft Sea Skiff in Florida last month. Here’s another fine example of a timeless Chris-Craft Sea Skiff that’s owned by Terry Harbin & Jerri Nowlen (Terry & Jerri).
Below, an immaculate 1956 AristoCraft Torpedo owned owned by Bill and Gail Turner from Gainesville, Georgia. Gail Turner is currently the Past President of the Antique & Classic Boating Society (ACBS).
