The 2011 Lake Chatuge Antique & Classic Boat Rendezvous which was held at The Ridges Resort & Marina in beautiful Hiawassee, Georgia was another successful event for the Blue Ridge Chapter ACBS. And thanks to Miracle Photography, we have an opportunity to see a few images from the event this weekend.
Above, Art Hampton and his crew aboard his 1958 Chris-Craft Capri “It’s Someday” out enjoying the stunning scenery that surrounds Lake Chatuge.
“Sliver” is a spectacular 2000 Goodhue & Hawkins 33′ Laker owned by Wayne & Carolyne Hollis from Gainesville, GA.
I know, I know… They’re not wooden boats, but they are sure cool looking classic fiberglass boats. In yesterday’s Lake Chatuge story, we were interested to learn more about these Aristo Craft Nineteen Hard Tops. Kelsey Fabricius commented… “There were 4 Aristo Craft Nineteens at Lake Chatuge – owners Scott Turner, Bill Turner (Scotts Father), Richard Turner, and Mark Murphy all with different period color schemes and upholstery. They varied from year 1968 to 1978 just 2 years before ceasing production.”
Thanks Kelsey! These photos almost resemble factory brochure photos from back in the day. One in each color…
We had the pleasure of seeing “Deja Voom” at the Sunnyland Antique Boat Festival last March, and I can say this Lyman is immaculate in every way. It’s a classic 1965 25′ Lyman Sleeper powered by a Grey Marine V-8 owned by Bill & Sheila Gillroy from Cumming, GA.
This cool overhead shot taken by Linda Miracle from the bridge at Lake Chatuge gives you an appreciation for the sheer size of the big Lyman Sleeper. If you have lots of friends, the Lyman is the boat for you…
Also thanks to Robert & Linda Miracle at Miracle Photography for sharing their images with us here at Woody Boater. You can see their entire boat show gallery and you can also purchase & download their beautiful photographs from their web site by clicking here.
