Over 10,000 images were taken, needless to say we are all weeding through them now for the best of the best images for you that tell the amazing story

As we weed through thousands of pictures, we have a little bit of teasers here. If you are a facebooker, Much of the show is plastered all over the place. But we had Kent and Steve out there doing there thing, and holy crap do we have some amaing shots. One could say, they are shots… in the arm that we all needed. A little tidbit of normalcy. Of course this was awaiting me when I got home. HA.. UGH..

Door locked. Test waiting. A harsh reminder.

back to wonderful moments. Steve Lapkin and Dave Bortner discussing the shoot for Grand Craft

Early AM oportunities


Loved seeing so many WB T shirts and hats. WOW.

A study in Aluminum.. The funniest thing was mark Setterholm sending Rabbit photos of Pontoon boats all day.. Thats just torture and funny

We want the ramp, and we will take it.

Ahhhhhh, a good old dock shot. I miss those

    What’s with the Evinrude tent? I thought they were history.
    And no chicken on a stick!

    1509 miles in two days.
    Rolled in last night and had to remember how to put the plow on. Winter storm watch with ice then snow coming in.
    Next time I will bring an extra week of the medication I take so I can stick around later.
    Great seeing everyone in person.

    Were there any food vendors there? If so, somehow I completely missed them.

    As for the Evinrude tent, the company may be gone but their swag lives on. That tent will be a collectible soon.

      Good luck Chug-A-Lug, we are with you in spirit. You will be boating soon.

    Yes, sadly, Mark Setterholm, Kevin Fitzke and I have this morning ritual where I send them the latest post from some “high end” pontoon maker and they send me a zinger back. Twin 350’s, power swiveling entire rear seating sections, stand up wet bars… all for the price of a perfectly restored Gar Wood Triple. You don’t know whether to laugh or cry. ONE of these years I’ll get to Sunnyland and and NOT take pontoon shots.

      Bruce – Kevin and I walked out of the beautiful Tavares Lakeside Pavilion and stared directly at a couple hundred feet of pontoons tied up in a row. That lit the fuse for the “‘tooner abuse” that we subjected you to. 😉 (Believe us, there was no shortage of pontoons to photograph.)

    GREAT SHOW!!!!

    Hang in there Chug-A-Lug, we are all with you!

    I feel sorry for all you poor slobs who had to run back up north. This was our sun set in Ft. Pierce last night.

    I saw the “North” ACBS cruise going South yesterday afternoon past our condo on the St. Johns River………..I guess their GPS guidance devices are leading them astray. At least they are BOATING!!!

    Great pics of some nice boats. Looks like it was a great time. Definitely on the too do list. Although I missed the sun and warm weather we did have the opportunity to recover a leaking Dunphy from a boat house on lake Vermillion.
