Happy people, vita amorosa!
We have been having fun with featured boat shows the past couple years. During the show we try and report on the news as its happening, and near the then, is when the real art comes out. These are the select shots that are far more than editorial coverage, they are shot through and edited through an artists eye. They capture the mood of the show, which to us here at Woody Boater is the entire point of a show. Steve Lapkin from Lake Tahoe knows how to do that.. You know Steve’s work from previous years, and this year he did not disappoint. So happy Monday!
The Roar Off is a great feature of the Tahoe Show

A stunning Panoramic shot of the show in the morning
Vents, Siren, Light, flag perfection. Each piece a work of art unto themselves. All put together on a rich wood canvas.
When you look at a small part of the boat you realize the absolute genus of it all. Pure art for the sake of beauty,and yet functional
Such art isnt just reserved for Italians. GarWood sure had a style
Who says dock shots are crap… Oh wait, that’s me.. Nevermind!
“someone” needs to talk to this owner about the lame ass art killer key float. Really? REALLY! You spend a bazillion hours on the restoration, carefully choose the correct green so it feels timeless, make sure the gauges are just so. Twin engines… And a day glow blue foam walmart float. AHHHHHH! NO SOUP FOR YOU!
See, a little simple off white monkey fist , feels organic and timeless. Key chains are like a cheap belt on a fine suite. Now about that line around the sterring wheel.
Very cool. Copper .. see, thats how its done!
