Here we go. Get ready. We have a whopper report coming in from Niagara from Kent O. Smith and today a “pre” view International teaser from Steve Lapkin. Oh hell to the ya! Here is the report from Steve. Take it away.
George Country….a stone’s throw from the Canadian – Idaho border. We’re ‘way out west.” Brian and Kathy Fair, our hosts (in pink Sheriff and Deputy t’s) – got me out on-the-water yesterday for a ‘pre’ view.
A quick stop at their lakefront dock got me a few clicks of their latest prize (winner) –
another “1955 Arabian Blue-Gray (sister to Philip’s Casper down in Wellington. Very handsome restoration by Fred…..(last name I need to get) – who is based in Montana. I sent Duster a few first-snaps yesterday: he replied – “wowzers, what a peach!”….”very nice stain job and top quality finish; stunning.”
Notes: this is a BIG body of water; dude in the ‘red/white/blue outfit is outgoing ACBS Board President, Tim Bush, giving his ‘opinion’ to the 1948 20-foot Custom, Beautiful Day.
On the water, all day, day two. The entire length of the lake to ourselves. Complete with an on-the-water BBQ lunch catered afloat. Over 35 boats of every marque. Everyone loved it!
OKAY there is a story here, I get to make it up, so just enjoy, and my apologies to the actors.. Hey! No captions. Its open season at someone’s expense..
On to Coeur d’ Alene on Tuesday for the ACBS International Boat Show and Annual Meeting. More to come.
