What a weekend, 4 shows that we knew of and more I am sure that we did not know about. One of the key shows though was the lake hopatcong show that for some reason each year I end up missing. But thank god for our trusty Woody Boaters who have filled in the seams… Get it.. Seams,,,, cracks.. ITS A BOAT JOKE! Anyway.. Here is a report from fellow Woody Boater Bob Kays.. Take it away Bob..
It was another beautiful day for the 37th annual Lake Hopatcong ACBS Chapter boat show, held at the historic Lake Hopatcong Yacht Club.Keeping with the history theme, wooden boat icon Hopatcong’s own Wayne Mocksfield stands next to his 1948 19’ Higgins Runabout “Splish”
This lake and show are all about Hopatcong History
“Hopatcong History” is a 1965 Century Coronado
Kim Marsden jazzed up the show and her family’s 1926 25’ Hackercraft “ Black Witch”
A local Boy Scout troop learned about judging from club President Bob Larson
A beautiful 1948 25’ Chris Craft Sportsman
Here are some of the hard working volunteers the help put on the show
My own 1957 17’ Chris Craft Custom Runabout “Relax”
Best in Show Preserved “Marjorie” 1929 Chris Craft Triple Cockpit owned by Sam and Jerrie Hoagland
Best in Show Restored “Mohawk Jr”. 1961 17ft Chris Craft Ski Boat owned by Ed Alonge
After the awards came desert, a special cake from New Jersey’s own Cake Boss TV star baker from The Learning Channel. The boat is Seth Katz’s 1955 21’ Chris Craft Cobra “ Finito”. That’s Seth and Renee Katz in the cockpit. The cake tasted great!
