After spending a good part of the day in the air on board a few flying cattle cars, we finally arrived at the Abbey Resort at Lake Geneva this evening. Managed to get down to the docks and snap a few shots as the sun was setting over beautiful Lake Geneva.
What a great venue for one the best antique & classic boat shows in the country, and we will do our best to cover the show and auction for our viewers that couldn’t make it to Wisconsin this year. We spoke to many of the boat owners, and participants who commented that the Blackhawk & Glacier Lakes ACBS Chapters and ACBS HQ was doing a fantastic job organizing this years big event.
Then our favorite all aluminum mystery boat “Tin Can” pulled in to the dock, and we had an opportunity to spend some time visiting with Jeff the owner. More on this boat tomorrow, after we go for a test ride.
Then, after sunset on to the Marque Club ACBS Auction After Glow Party down the street at Gordy’s Boat House Cobalt Lounge. And as expected, it was hit with lots of folks doing what they do best, just “Talkin Boats”. Fellow Woody Boater’s and newly deputized roving reporters Mike and Nicole Mayer snapped a few shots from the After Glow Party. Here’s our favorite hard to get hardware builder / supplier Al Schinnerer from California Classic Boats enjoying another visit with Carla from Hagerty Marine Insurance and her friend.
