This August, the 28th to be exact, up on Gull Lake, there are gonna be a hole lotta special Chris Crafts at the docks, and even more Chris Craftians, NEW WORD BTW. And a bunch of other Algonac area boats, Gar Woods, belle Isle, etc. In other words, they will be shipping in some of those bugs that die in hords under the lights up in Michigan. And huge news. I mean huge.. Word has it, The old man himself is going to make an appearance. Yup, Christopher Columbus Smith himself. Yup. You heard it here first. SCOOP! SIKE! BOOOOYA!
Now, first a couple things. You have to be one with the universe, and be in tune with the vibrations of wood. Not the loose shaft vibration, the breathing life that wood embodies and holds. See, with all that original wood in one location, certain spirits are going to be together in one place. Lenny from Steam Bending, and Earl from Engine Painting haven’t seen each other or been together since 1939. And now, they will be. There souls will all be there having a beer and sausage.
You just have to walk the docks and rub your ears onto the wood. Yup. Ester in Accounting at Chris Craft was having a secret affair with Roy in Blue Prints, and well, Ester’s Husband Berney worked in the wood shop, and well, chances are they should all be there. So a whole lotta ship could go down. And you thought boat shows are boring. Not when you bring it all together.
And so, you can see, that after 40 or so Chris Crafts come together, little pieces Of Christopher Columbus Smith come together and he may appear. Hey, it’s the internet, and I am a “social media Influencer” so it has to be true.
There ya have it. Huge gathering of historic boats, dead Chris Craft employees, and possibly some good old Jerry Springer fights, all located in one of the most perfect classic boat settings on the planet.
