Here come da boats!

The weather is PERFECT, the boats are perfect, The location is perfect. I am in a dark room so I don’t ruin it! But what a room it is.

This is the amazing meeting Hall I am working in. WOW! I could sit in here all day and just drink in the history.

    Fantastic photography Matt! Are you shooting with a DSLR? Can’t be your usual ol Apple I Phone. OK so spill the beans , who built “Golden Years” Minett, Leyare , Fay and Bowen ???… man what a boat!

      It is a 1913 Matthews – you sure had some good guesses. We were stumped first thing today as well. It’s a gorgeous old girl and now powered by a slightly Scripps 4 cylinder. It cleaned on the hardware tonight as well.

        Yah I wasn’t convinced my original three guesses were correct so I went looking for evidence – the clue being the arrow . Here’s the ad that clinched it

    Way too much time spent in the darkroom. U may be getting in trouble with woodylboater gal.

    Ah Ha ! Now the guy driving Miss Step is smiling !!

    Hang on. Is he smiling because Miss Step received Best in Show or because he is sitting next to Stacy ??
