Century Boat Club Thoroughbred Round Up
The 29th Annual Century Boat Club Thoroughbred Round Up in Manistee, Michigan on Saturday 9/7 brought together not only some wonderful boats, but many long term classic boaters. The journey to the home of Thoroughbreds brought both locals and far away travelers together for a Woody Boater weekend in the small town of Manistee, rich in tradition.
What a treat to view Century boats from a 1938 SeaMaid to a 1966 Fibersport at one marina at one time. The Manistee Marina across the channel from which the boat company plant was located.
Woody Boaters Conrad Adamski, Helen Fortier , Marion Johnson, Joe Helimski, Sky Wittig, John Holmes, Al Zatarga and other former Century Boat Co. employees gathered on the Manistee channel to view a great collection of boats and chat about days gone by.
Family affair – Sue & Greg Griffith & kids in their award winning 1941 Century Sea Maid.
Got to love a parade… a 1957 Century Arabian with newlyweds Laura & Kyle Barton, John Synder’s very cool 1966 Century 17′ Fibersport and Russ & Tammy Arrand’s beautiful 1941 Chris-Craft 22′ Deluxe Utility.
A Pure Michigan Round Up!
