    Hats off to Jim for sending the report. I was there and it is quite a unique setting for this event. Old Tall trees and a nifty lawn to shade us from the sun. Plenty of refreshments and a great picnic lunch of pulled pork sandwiches and salads. That Lincoln V-12 was a hit.

    Karl thanks for a great outing and a great setting. As a life long resident of Okauchee Lake it is one of the coolest events on the lake..

    Thanks Jim & Texx! I’ll take the Ford GT. Great venue & crystal clear water!

      WoodyGal – Good choice. That Ford GT would be a perfect boat hauler providing you didn’t have to go too deep at the launch ramp…

    I was wondering about the mahogany outboard boat with the mercury engine featured in the picture of Classic Boats Arriving at Karl Johns House, 2nd picture down. Cool outboard boat and would like to see more pictures of this boat

      Neil,

      The boat you are interested in is a home built. Roberta Hegy is the builder. It’s even nicer looking in person!

    Thanks for the coverage Jim, that looks like one heck of a classic meetup.
