Alex Bay, The Grand Finale.


Kent O. Smith Jr we salute you!

Bravo! What a performance. The artists all came together and gave us a wonderful journey of emotion. The absolute best part of this past week was being able to see how different artists see the same thing. How they work, and bring a unique perspective. Thats what being an artist is about. Kent O. Smith Jr with amazing light, and motion, Steve Lapkin who captures the exact mlila second that tells a much larger story, and Bob Kays who’s calm inner spirit comes through his work with a wonderful charm. And the YNOT Gang that always delivers the punch and fun … WOW!

Here is something you couldnt see if you were there. WOW

We bow to the Centuries that made it

We bow to the YNOT Gang!

We bow to the Gar Woods! – Nice hat!

We bow to the Riva’s

Thanks for making a splash!

At least she is happy!

Bring on the long boats!

Good god!

I have always loved this boat!

Best name of the show

Tanks for the shots Kent.

We need more young people. Less bumpers

Okay, this is a bad ass cool as ship shot. Dang! Not easy to pull off and a classic Kent O. Smith Jr look at things.

Zoom Zoom Zoom!

Did you see that? That was cool Kent

The fun, the smiles, the passion!

Don Ploatner brought some fun from the plastic past

A special boat, and special people

We are headed out one more time

The gang from Lake Hopatcong had some fun for sure

Wake me up when this is over

As the sun comes down on a very successful event.


A huge thanks to all that sent in stories and photos. And most importantly a massive standing ovation to this man. This amazing man, Joe Flemming from Lake Hopatcong. Who without his efforts, we wouldnt have events like this to remind us why we are all in this. Fellowship, fun and friendship. Joe Flemming ACBS Member #1 We all bow to you sir.

    Great event! Congrats and bravo to all those that put it on, participated, sponsored it and brought it to the WoodyBoater community that were not there. And yes, a big thanks to Mr. Flemming, who got this thing going many years ago. We hope it will keep going for a very long time!

    OH! And the emailer feed is fixed! So hopefully those of you on the email feed are now getting emails again. This was all related to the image comment issue. Like unraveling spaghetti, thats 4 hrs of my life I will never get back!

    Great photos as always from Kent. Don Spring took me out to capture pictures of Pardon Me in his 22′ Garwood which can be seen in his two pictures from Pardon Me.
