ALGONAC! The Original Factory location.
Fellow Woody Boater Roger Arkwright reports in from Algonac ish, but he went DOWN to Algonac, which I am down with, never really thought of going South to Algonac for some reason. MAYBE BECAUSE IT’S NORTH. But maybe he went North to Algonac from Ohio. It’s all kinda confusing. HA, Here is Rogers report which, yes includes a log splitter show, which I am sure will take over the conversation today. If we can thread Bacon, and Zip the smoking Monkey in here, we could blow up the internet. AND! Roger didn’t send captions. Know what that means. I get to make them up!
Lost in the weeds, or Detroit, either way, not Algonac. Be patient !
Matt, traveling from the Toronto area my buddy needed to pickup a specialty radiator in Detroit, so we ended down in the old industrial area near Ford’s River Rouge plant; historically a very interesting area. Next to one of the many derelict buildings was this orphan…just had to take a picture. It seems interesting projects are everywhere.
This was NOT Agonac. Or a boat Show!
After Detroit on Friday we went to Wauseon, Ohio because my buddy said that if we are going to Algonac and he was driving, (plus he helped me last week to work on my 23′ 1972 Chris Craft Lancer), we needed to see this steam show.
And you thought boat shows needed more to do!
Yep, no boats but lots of historic engines for boats and we did see them cut timber the way it used to be done back in the day.
OK? Algonac now? OK,
We jump started this in Florida at the Palm Garden. Very fun boat and great owner!
A bunch of boats. Hey! What, I cant be funny on all the captions. Its a bunch of boats in mixed media, metal, fiberglass and wood.
Coolness. Is this Shannons boat? I think we have featured this. I dont think the metal pole is vintage and points should be deducted!
1929 46′ Morton Johnson, how did I know that? Facebook and Dave Bortner from Freedom Boat Service that’s how. I do think there is more to the boat. Maybe. Sorry no Morton salt jokes or Large Johnson ones either. Too easy.
Petes Cobra and part of the marina in the background. And some dude in a hat! that is not Christopher Smith BTW, his hat was different.
A Lyman, for the Lyman guy that always coments about Lymans. And to show the Lyman Lovers that we even feature them AT A CHRIS CRAFT PLANT!
Ok, there is nothing funny here. Molly-O is hands down the coolest 25 sportsman out there. That rear sterring and fold down windshield, her histoy the owner, its all just everything right here that I love Algonac in one boat, OH AND THAT WATA!
What can I say more about this interior that we haven’t before. ITS PERFECT!
Is this Glass of 68? or Class. I am confused. Its wood right?
Mother of all show boats! AHHHHHH, Its like watching warm butter slowly melting on a fresh warm stack of pancakes, right next to some bacon right out of the iron skillet. Ya, there, I weaved bacon into this darn story. Mfine, take it away. Troy? Where will todays story go?
