  1. Nice coverage, Jack. Thanks to the skippers at the show for awarding our 1955 Correct Craft Atom Skier Best Preserved-Most Original at the show.

  2. It makes me very happy to see Vogler Boy was purchased by someone who really uses her.

    Great event coverage! Looks like a fun event!

  3. The Norton Boat Works custom ‘tribute’ boat has an interesting story:

    It’s a post-war 17′ Chris-Craft hull that was partially completed when they decided to re-power with a taller, modern marine engine- they would have needed to put an obnoxious crown in the deck to make space for the engine, so after some thought, they re-created this circa-1930 ‘tribute’ double-cockpit runabout, with its raised coamings and engine hatches, to solve the problem beautifully. I guess it’s what you’d call a ‘resto-mod’?

    Alex Watson referred to an authentic 1930 boat like this at the recent Hessel, MI classic boat show as a ‘Model 99’ and I’ve seen earlier WB stories about this small-scale model- here’s another shot of the Norton recreation (currently for sale BTW):

    • I have the same 99 frame # 14514 In restoration , 8 yrs., and counting. All wood is intact and scraped, and ready Smiths. All bright work completed , engine not so good. Poured bearings is giving a fair amount of trouble. Any way good seeing another 99, which there a very small number of and just the right size 17 + !!!!

  4. Great pics. Gotta love Wisconsin. I may live in Minnesota, but every weekend I cross the border into “God’s Country.” That’s why my registration starts with “WS.”

    Hope the fundraiser was big success.

  5. Looks like a GREAT show.

    Does anyone know why the name “Vogler Boy V” is painted at a rise toward the bow or is it just an optical illusion?
