Word to the wise. Show up to early to a boat show and… You get to see all your pals before the crowd shows up. The St michaels ACBS Antique & Classic boat Show did not disapoint. Great folks, Great Food, Great boats.. Great Weather.. What could be better? No traffic. I did the trip reverse rush hr. DANG! That is so the way to go.. Miss America IX was there in full plumage, along with some nice cruisers and the usual jaw droppers from Ebbie Dupont. Dang, his boats are PERFECT! and Rare.. Below are some fun shots from the event.
Fellow Woody Boater Phil Jones and his trusty Bucket..
Early Morning friday. Before the show opened.. Thats Jim Shotwells collection of small racers.. Go Jim Go!
Lymans, Large Lushious Lymans.. Love those Lymans!

This ones for you Jerri...sal I am say'n - Charles Mistle has a great sense of humor..
Winner of the coolest Cruiser on the planet.. Billy Bunting' 1935 Consolidated Trunk Cabin Sedan Cruiser. Twin 454's and open rear cabin that in my mind saves these sorts of cruisers opening up capt and guests.. AC on board. This is one fun boat, and is slated to be at the Reedville boat show in September
And the OH LOOK A PONY award goes to a Killer Lancer in the feild of dreams. 660 orig hours, Orange Orange interior.. New 350 engine. I want this boat... Outdrive... Still love it though..
Ya think you have a big Bow? There is always someone with a bigger bow than you..
I had to leave at 11, and got out of there at 2, it kept getting better and better. i was passing very cool stuff on the road coming in. DANG! This weekend is always a large weekend for the family. There is still time to enjoy a great day Saturday and Sunday. St Michaels and the surrounding area are some of the most beautiful in the mid Atlantic and on the Chesapeake Bay.. And the museum is spectacular. This is a big time deal.. Keep up the Woody Waver Weekend! Matt
