Long-ish being a reference to the unique venue, not the story… Our Friend, Fellow Woody Boater, Premium Restoration Guy & Noted Author – Don Danenberg sent us a few shots from this year’s big 2012 Boats on the Boardwalk show in Traverse City, Michigan. With that llloooonnngggg boardwalk (along the Boardman River – You can’t make this stuff up), this is a perfect venue for a classic boat show which is hosted by the nice folks at the Water Wonderland Chapter ACBS in Michigan.
There were 48 antique & classic boats registered / in the water for this year’s show.
Is this one of the few Riva’s in the country that isn’t going to be Lake Tahoe for the Concours d’Elegance next weekend? It’s always great to see an elegant Riva anywhere in the country.
For us it’s simply amazing to see how many wonderful antique & classic boat shows there are throughout the state of Michigan, and we know our friends Carla & Chris from Hagerty Marine Insurance are working hard to get to as many of these events as possible, and Chris mentioned that he was planning to attend the Boats on The Boardwalk show this weekend.
Chris must have made it because you can see the traditional blue Hagerty banner on the bridge down the river…
Mike and Kirk (Kirk in the dark glasses) from the Wooden Runabout Company in nearby Holland, Michigan with their perfect all original Chris-Craft Land Cruiser mobile office / beverage unit…
