    Ditto on Rob’s comments. I was there and the show was fantastic as usual…and never disappoints. Cudos to the ACBS Southwest Chapter for another great event!

  2. Brian Flaherty

    These seems like a great event! Love the mix of classic boats and classic cars!

    Definitely helps keep me motivated now that I just finished my 6th coat of paint on out ’69 Cavalier Ski Boat… Just 13 days left till the big Seattle Parade Day ?

    This show has traditionally here not been reported well. It always felt like a huge parking lot with boats and cars. Robs photos really tell a much better story and you can see how much fun it is. Thanks again for the great report. And boats in the water!

  4. Dan T

    I agree. That 38 special is a winner. Perfection! They always show so much better in the water. Now take that beauty out and beat her up a little bit. Could use a little patina.

  5. Nautilus

    Love the shot of “Serenity,” now one of only two remaining Elco 57s. We owned her sister ship, “Matriarch” which we used for seven years in our wine and cheese cruise business.

    Rob, as a proud Triumph TR6 owner, the red one on the extreme right, I want to inform you that all the cars started and left without incident, except for one, the blue TR 4 in the picture which I able to jump start on its way — hey, nine out of ten ain’t bad — see you next year!
