OK – It’s Christmas day, and for most Woody Boaters this time of year, your antique & classic boats have been carefully stored away for the winter, right? Next week will be the beginning of a new year and your probably starting to look forward to spring and another season of classic boating.
But if your not quite ready to watch another re-run of The Sound of Music or White Christmas on the tube, fellow Woody Boater Dane Anderson sent us some great images from the 2011 Gull Lake Antique and Classic Boat Show at the docks of Bar Harbor in Minnesota. Then, at the end of todays story, if you have an extra 11 minutes to spare, you can watch an interesting time lapse video of the event. Part way through the video it’s fun to watch the antique boats jockey for position as they arrive, and dock stern first into the slips… some guys take a few runs at it as they carefully guide the big triples into position for the show.
WARNING: DON’T WATCH THIS VIDEO AFTER EATING A BIG TURKEY DINNER, YOU WILL NEVER GET THROUGH IT!!
Here’s a few of Dane’s great images from the 2011 Gull Lake event…
