They are coming from New Zealand

The best part of this party is you can come in your underwear, not shave and smell like a raw onion. We don’t care, cause you are here, and there at the same time. We have some special Shrimp, and cheese cubes. Hey we never really promised a spread. Cheese cubes.. And eat them fast cause they don’t last.

The First one, 2011 – Texx and Jimmy talk abut airplanes.. yes vintage airplanes.. With that hat on…

This welcome party is also a Huge thanks to the Volunteers and Vendors that make this show what it is. THE SHOW! The start of Classic Boating Season. And even though we are all on our sofa’s watching the news.

These Welcome parties were a hit from the start

Pontoon Cheese boat!

IT’S PARTY TIME. SHOW UP! COMMENT UP! Let us all know we are not alone here. THANKS! Matt, Our Sponsors and Sunnylanders!

    Keeper and crew are on the way from Whitmore Lk, MI. We’re getting out of town before the temps drop to the 20’s. We’ll spread out in the 17.5 footer once we’re underway.

    Went through the Dora canal yesterday, saw a couple woodies out and about. One was docked at the Palms around 4:00 ish.
    Be safe, hopefully see you next year. Ps, the temporary docks outside of Puddle Jumpers were nice

    Got a late start but I’m coming just as fast as I can. Still can’t believe they left the keys in the ignition!

      Aloha! We are running full bore from Gig Harbor with our Fairliner Torpedo. Hope we make it in time for the fun. We might be a little late since there was a traffic jam at the Panama Canal. Hope the show is a big success! Make every day the best day of your life, so far!
