Thanks to the FANTASTIC crew at the Antique Boat Museum, we have a live – ish report from Clayton. Fellow Woody Boater Margret Hummel sent us in this report and some great photos of boats! Yes actual amazing historic boats. Take it away Margret.
Thanks Woody, High water should not cause issues at boat ramp. Everyone has put on their best MacGuyver hats this year and come up with unique engineering/carpentry solutions to raise the height of their docks.
The River is a little quieter than usual because some cottagers and boat owners have not come up yet due to the high water.Boating on the River is affected by a special 5 MPH within 600 feet of shore limitation, as issued by NYS. However, since some boats at 5 MPH throw an even bigger wake than when planed off, we’re encouraging folks to throw little to no wake within 600 feet. Be kind to our River neighbors. STORY HERE
Special activity – we are trying to get Pardon Me on display (land display only) during boat show. She was supposed to be on display down in the Boldt Castle Yacht House this summer but their Yacht House has been closed due to high water. We’re working with our hauler today and tomorrow to figure out if/where we can put her in campus.
Our Marketplace should be fantastic. We have a wonderful manager of the Marketplace area, Mary Bowman, who has recruited more vendors than we have had in years. No admission required to shop the Marketplace.
Because our speedboats are not in the water yet this year, we are offering sailboat rides during the show which is totally new.
At least 6 beautiful cruisers out on the Mary Street dock, don’t forget to go visit them. Sometimes they are overlooked because of the separate docking but the cruiser crowd is always so welcoming. They’re usually enjoying snacks and beverages and are happy to show folks their floating homes!
The beer has been delivered, so that is all that matters!
