One Hundred Years ago when Christopher Smith and Gar Wood, John Hacker and countless others could not imagine the revolution they had started. A revolution of joy, family, fun, freedom. The mass production of motor boats.
We are so very lucky to be blessed with so much rich history still around us. Passion is a wonderful thing. And to be able to stop time for a day and celebrate at the home where it all began, is a gift we all should take advantage of.
Each year there is a special show out there from all the annual shows that stand out. And going and being part of the celebration is a must. This year its this show in Algonac, and the original factory location.
If you have never been there, This is the year. Its a very special place, and once you get there, you “get it” how our passion for classic boats all started. Its like visiting the South Of France, and Bam, all those amazing Impressionistic paintings make sense. You can immerse yourself in it all. It’s less about the stuff, and more about the gestalt of it all. Ya, I know this gets kind of deep, but trust me, if you are open to all the vibes of the universe, you will leave with a far deeper understanding of our united passion, than when you came.
Here is the info if you are open to being bathed in the glory of history. Or just want to win a trophy.
