The Bluegrass Chapter of the ACBS just had its one annual show, and my wife and I attended it for the first time as woody boat owners. (We bought a 1949 Greavette at Antique Boat Center last winter) I shot a few photos over the weekend, and thought I might offer them to you to use if you’re really scratching hard for content. ( NOTE TO BRYAN, WE ARE ALWAYS SCRATCHING HARD FOR CONTENT) The photos are captioned in their File Info areas.

The event was the Tenth Annual Bluegrass Chapter ACBS Rendezvous, held at the docks of the Lake Cumberland State Resort Park near Jamestown, KY. It attracted 39 registered boats, plus two classics that appeared during the day to join the group.

The Best of Show award, as voted by captains, went to a 1929 ACF Wason, owned by Robert and Leslie LeDuc of Dandridge, TN. (Don’t have a quality photo of it. Too busy getting out and boating. Weak excuse.)

    There was a guy named Lazenby who played James Bond. The spelling is close enough for Woody Boater so how about Bryan “James Bond’ Leazenby

  2. Troy

    Looking closer at “Time Machine” August 23rd is my sons Birthday. (a little later than 1967 though)

    It is amazing how often the number combination of 823 comes up.

  3. Sean

    Because… Bluegrass Bureau, Boat Beat Bryan (or B5) is just too long.

  4. Graeme Beattie

    I joined Bryan’s first and last names and came up with ‘Breazenby’

  5. Dave Clyne

    Great photos ! Definitely a “10”.
    Thus “10-a-SEE” Bryan.
    Well done.

  6. Rick

    Feels like a group of kids trying to figure out a nickname for the new kid in the neighborhood. LOL Ok since it’s all sweet water there we could call him “Nosalt”

  7. brian t

    There was a James Bond played by actor George Lazenby and Mr. Bryan Leazanby is close so perhaps a few mixes with with James Bond stuff and Leazanby and the Bluegrass bits…

    Woody Galore

    There is M and Q, so maybe just B

    Bluefeld (SPECTRE bad guy Blofeld and Bluegrass)

    Old Number #7 (Tennessee whiskey and SPECTRE dudes)

    wait. wait. wait. I got it – instead of Goldfinger….

    VARNISHFINGER !!

    I smell Victory with that last one….

  8. brian t

    By the way, Goldfinger was set in Kentucky with the horses and Fort Knox and all that…

    As a side bar, I kept wonering why I love that Dorsete so much. BAm, designed by Raymand Loewy one of my all time favorite designers! DAMMMMMM! Tow it with your Avante. Get gas at Shell.. While drinking a coke and smoking a pack of Lucky strikes. http://jetsetmodern.com/loewy.htm

    My favorite “Tennessee” character comes from the first movie I saw in a theatre…

    In the movie, “Tennessee” had a kindrid relationship with vehicles (and Irish coffee) not to mention meditation and the order of the world.

    Maybe “Buddy Boater” would fit as a spin on this thinking?

  11. Ronald

    ” Kentucky Wonder ”

    And a great time was had by all, not there Friday but Saturday weather was perfect with a lot of really nice boats, Thanks to Mr. Leazenby for the report.
