CRA 2014 200

This might be a tad confusing. There is still a countdown. The official Classic Boat Show is on Frday, but today we are Live-ish from Lake Dora. Karen Harrison reported in with some amazing photos of the The Classic Race Boat Association Races going on. Now, there are no real stories behind or in front of the pictures so its going to be all told in pictures. Hey, you get what you pay for! Go smear some gas on the key board and sit behind a running car while you read this. That should complete the image.. Thanks to Karen for at least letting us know that there is hope that summer is almost here.

Aparently everyone was just hanging around... Get it.. Hanging, lifting... Hey you make this stuff up every day!

    I really want to try a Jersey Skiff one of these days! If anyone can help me out with that just let me know.

    We are currently having lunch at JFK waiting to board our second leg to Orlando, then on to Dora. Will try to report something Liveish later.

    Was there. A great event, 50 plus boats, lots of noise and a great group of people having fun. Come back to Tavares next November or the weekend before the Sunnyland Boat Festival in March 2015 for the Classic Raceboat Associations next events
