This wonderful shot from Graeme Beattie Your headline sparked fond memories. We were participating in the Manotick and Classic Boat Club's "Last Run of the Season" in October 1998 on the Rideau River aboard Miss Muskoka. It was also my very 'Last Run' in Miss Muskoka. She was sold the next day to Lee Anderson, Land of Lakes MN via Todd Warner. I had our club's photographer, Frank Phelan, take some pictures to cover the event. This picture is my favourite of the photo shoot.

    More great stuff.

    Here is AB as she sits in front of the shed she will spend the cold Maine winter in.

      I’m glad your teaching the young man how to swim. Very important since he will be spending a lot of time around boats.

        Ah, reminds me of the good old days here at WoodyBoater when we mainly talked about correct toilet seats.

    Hey Bob, perhaps you should change the sign at your dock to read “No Danger, No Ice.”

    Better get that water back up or it’ll be a bumpy ride for the Hopatcong iceboaters.

    • Bob Kays

      The plan is to begin allowing the lake to refill in mid Dec, until the ice forms. I put the sign up trying to be optimistic and I did not want to put it up in bone chilling cold.The water is down 60″, the main lake has plenty of water for the ice sailors, just a smaller area until the water comes back. Last weekend there was a lake wide clean up of the exposed bottom. A group of divers volunteered to clean up deeper spots. I would love to get them to look for the woodies that were sunk to get rid of them back in the day. This a the view from our dock last weekend

    I like Graham Beatties pictures of miss muskoka
    The second boat in the group picture is a 1948 17 foot Shepherd (note spelling) named wyllie coyote.
    Keep up the good work
