Alex Watson, M-Fine, Chris Wise at the helm, and the Ramsy’s all out on The ultimate Patina Queen!
Well, yesterday had it all. The day started out OK, a bit chilly, and then the storm hit. The Sunnyland gang made the call, to just ride it out and that was the right call. Cause when the rain stopped, man oh man the light came out. BAM, there were boats flying all over the place. Two days of pent up desire unleashed on Lake Dora. We shot over 1500 photos in just 2 hours and to be honest are just still weeding through them. We were able to capture a stunning blue XK 19 and The XK 18 Jet boat out having fun with the Baby Donzi.. And a once in a lifetime moment captured on film of Christopher Wise taking out on the water his Wise Craft boat his great grandfather built in 1928. This boat rides like velvet. All her original varnish. Her Patina is PERFECT.. Christopher could not contain himself. That boat was out driving around at every chance. And we were able to capture it. We are prepping a story on that as well.
In between little rain showers Chris had his family out on the boat for the first time. These moment s were very touching..
Yet despite all the gloom and doom, this years show was a blast of color. the Correct Craft gang brought it all out. And it made the day. It may have been a bit cloudy in the sky, but it was sunny near the boats.
