Thanks to Woody Boater Photographer Bob “Have I Got I Calendar For You ” Kays and the good folks at Katz’s Marina. We have the first “Official ” images of Thayer IV U22-1460 The main picture boat from On Golden Pond, complete and motoring around the beautiful Lake Hopatcong. Lake Goldapatcong? Hogolden Pond,????
At the wheel is the legendary Mr Wanye Moxfield and Seth Katz himself. Thayer IV U22-1460, not in the water for over a decade, found last year with the US mail Boat Mariah, and now completely redone and preserved, new bottom, frames, rebuilt engine, gauges, all of it. NO SHORTCUTS… In fact extra care was taken to preserve most of the boat down to the original snaps, dings and dents., in 6 months! And Mariah as well.. INSANE to see this happening so fast and well done.. This is a shift in how we all think of restorations. So here ya go.. Here is the exclusive video starting at when the boat was put in the water. Put on your fishing cap, lets go Golden Ponding!
Enjoy some more images
Just 7 DAYS TIL LAKE DORA.. And these wonderful water craft will be there. Stay tuned for more updates on Mariah as they happen live!
