Perfection!

Thanks again to fellow Woody Boater and Tahoe reporter Steve Natale for showing us behind the scenes at the big The 2016 Concours d’Elegance which is celebrating 80th anniversary of a boating icon: the Chris-Craft Racing Runabout. The event takes place at the historic Obexers Marina, which has been around since 1911.
