1948-racing-runabout

Mmmm, Strawberry and whip cream love.. mmmmmm

We had the pre events, then the events and now the launch, or is it all really all of it. One full week of all you can eat fun. It’s a metaphor, run with me here. Now, thanks again to Herb Hall from Sierra Boat Co. on stunning Lake Tahoe for sending in some yummy shots of Launchtime. And sorry, or not, no captions, so we get to make them up. Woohoo!

    Don’t they have launch ramps at Lake Tahoe, or is the water level so low they are not usable?

    • Mike Green

      They have a few on the lake that are usable but this allows the owners to just lift them off the trailer right in the marina. They can do about one every 10 minutes. Some of the small boats and all of the larger ones will use the ramps and drive over.

    The International sure does bring out The Cream of the Crop!

    Simply BEAUTIFUL!

    I just saw video of a brief morning snow shower over the show boats. What are the odds that a flurry hits the 2016 Show in California. I mean last year was Minnesota which could have been in a blizzard but nope global warming made for perfect weather. The forecast does say that Tahoe will be b-e-a-utiful today so have 2 cups of coffee in the lodge and then hit the docks.

    Water is down 9 ft. So the break walls are very high. 28 this morning at least it’s not snowing. Sun is shining today and it’s boat show day. Going all the way up to 61 so having a slow start to the day. 102 in Scacarmento to 28 here it’s been an interesting trip.
