What a weekend of Awards, while winning Best Chris Craft at the Sunnyland show.  And of course and this isn’t just some sort of line, the real award for us here was being out on the water and seeing old friends. I vividly recall saying within 10 seconds of being out on the lake, that the drive and hard work preparing was all worth it. We are weeding through a bunch of photos and getting in more from Alex Watson so stay tuned.

    Congrats on the awards. But even heartier congrats for the ad with the 25′ Sportsman. It tugged at my heart because it shows the boat, not just as its beautiful self, but as it’s meant to be used. THAT’S what promotes classic boating to prospective newbies!

    Congratulations to all involved in the artistic efforts at Woody Boater. Absolutely stunning images that convey the feeling!

    Congrats on the award for Wecatchem as well…….but I suspect your real award is all the happy people that experienced that Van Ness power on Lake Dora.
