Live From Algonac Michigan!
Well, yesterdays through the windshield day sure broke the bank. What the heck was that about. I suppose we are all not alone with our need to take the same picture over and over again. I couldn’t check my email while driving, but each time I would stop, I would be shocked at the wonderful comments. Today we are finally here in Algonac ready to have some fun! First off a trip to one of the original Chris Craft foundries where hardware was made, then off to an amazing picnic with a record 40 boats and over 100 folks. This years show turn out is the best in over a decade. The location could not be any more perfect as is the company.
Our Algonac HQ is a 2015 47 ft Sea ray courtesy of fellow Woody boater of the year Pete Beauregard and his wonderful bride who own the Marina where the plant used to be.
It’s amazing. We got here around 1 yesterday and were met by Terry Fiest and had a very relaxing afternoon just catching up on stuff. that’s what its all about here. Low key fun with pals on the water.
So right now we are getting ready to head out with the camera. Stay tuned later for updates through out the weekend. And of course this will be milked through out the week.
Yesterday there was a beautiful Sea Skiff docked next to that Futura.
There should be a Futura in some “Hall of Fame of Design”. Absolutely the best of anything that floats, fly’s or otherwise moves under it’s own power. Best of the Best! Can’t see enough photos of Futura’s!
We got in around 9:30 last night. I ended up with not 1, but 2 munchkins for my crew. This should be interesting.
The header boat reminds me of this one in Leland, Michigan. Only God knows how many fish have been hauled into that boat.
Look forward to making that trip soon, also looking forward to WB’s coverage of the event. Will be making my official launch tomorrow here in SC, will be the first time this old boat has been in the water for over 25 years.
Capris, Fiberglass outboards, and Tripples are cool, but the Great Lakes are Big Water.
Let’s see some of those Classic Cruisers that come to Algonac this time…..I love this show….
i think matt has fallen in love with that searay, too busy in the cabin for our updates!
The house and the boat in the header exhibit a curious design commonality… “Close enough!” as we often hear… 😉
I wish I was at the show. We’ll get there when I retire, but in the meantime we have the CC Rendezvous coming up in a couple weeks, so it’t not all bad!
Rain-Rain, go away and come another day………….(PLEASE)
