Tahoe Sausage Day, Ahhh Come On, You Knew It Was Gonna Happen.


Okay, who is driving?

Yes, there are a ton of other shows that happened out there. But we would be remiss without a Sausage Day from Lake Tahoe. Now we are also going to include stuff that happened while reporting on the show. Needless to say my brain was been ripped apart via email with all the cool stuff. So here goes. Grab some eggs and Toast with your Coffee varnish. Its sausage time!

Lots O’ testure on that dash

Hey, buddy, ya you on the phone.. Look to your left.

No one driving, no one sitting. AHHHHHH!

No matter how many times I see this work of art, it still takes my breath away

Oh! Man O Man O ManOman! This must be tapping into some sort of fetish thing. Or maybe the serial killer in me is coming out, cause this boat under wraps is one cool boat. You just want to sloooowly peel away the painters tape, and let a soft breeze blow the thing plastic wrap off, exposing the ever so polished skin. OH, help me!

And a wonderful shot of the Tahoe Museum. Hey Bob Kays! Tell Wayne we found his boat!

    Not only did you find Wayne’s boat, the “Godfather”, it has museum quality wicker sisters! When Wayne sold it, Chris Crsft hull #6, some nice person donated it to the Tahoe museum.

    I am sure it will change soon, but currently I am still looking at yesterdays header and you have some great choices for a sausage day header to pick from.

    That ‘ Plastic Century’ named Tweeter is actually a 1964 ‘plywood’ Century Ski Dart with plenty of power ( Ford Intercepter 180 HP V8 ) and vinyl decks. These were entry level ski boats back in the day. Its a lifelong Tahoe boat owned by Dale and Donna Renolds.

      The predecessor to the awesome Century Cheetah which was fiberglass and came in a most excellent shade of avocado.

    While I miss seeing Texx at Tahoe, it was nice to see Phil Andrews there. The blonde on the deck of the 27’ Chris triple is Captain Dan (Danielle) from the Tahoe Maritime Center. She was operating that boat as a ride boat for three days during the show. She must get marriage proposals on a daily basis. She is impressive.
