Over the past couple weeks, we have been focused on some monster shows, Clayton and Tahoe are whoppers for sure. But as we talked about yesterday, smaller shows like Harvy’s Lake can be small but very rich in boats, and then there is what could be the smallest show of the year. But one of the more fun. This past weekend the Splash Mob Eric Zelman tried to do the weekend of the rain was on! Sadly we couldn’t make it. But it didn’t stop others in the area from having some timeless Chesapeake Bay fun. Eight boats in total. These photos are timeless and look just like the old Whirlwind photos back in the day.
Whirlwind – Bethany holding the boat while John anchors
Whirlwind – Art Gilbert – picture driving boat across fleets with his wife.
Hacker-Craft – Will Garvey – picture of boat anchored off beach AND getting towed back! (Loose ground) SEE! It’s a real boat show. Someone got towed home.
Wagemaker – Eric Zelman – picture crossing Fleets Bay with Cliff’s girlfriend Rita taking picture
Carolina Skiff – Jill drove the canteen boat with 12 lbs of BBQ (shredding with wolverine claws), backed beans, slaw, chips,
beverages, table, chairs etc.
Arrived and set up picnic, some took a stroll on the beach around towards Windmill Point, the guys talked shop. Clif got several swims in. Packed up and headed out then the call came that Will’s Hacker would not start. One of our local neighbors towed Will to our dock using his metal skiff. Hung out and enjoyed some Margaritas at our place while John and Will worked on the Hacker. No luck. Sunday, Will pulled the battery and had it checked, all good, he put it back in and it started! Turned out to be a loose ground.
Definitely need to do this again-

Look, smiles, fun and beachtime
