Live-ish From Lake George New York


There are lakes, and then there are lakes. And this is Lake George the second kind of lake.. The stunning kind, the post card kind… Hands down one of the most magnificent settings on the planet earth for classic boats. This weekend was your chance to bask in the glory of both. And for those of you.. and me.. that were else wear. Through the magic of the web, you can be there. Thanks to fellow Woody Boater Kent O. Smith you can now sip on your cup of coffee in Woody Boaterville. The 37th Annual Lake George Rendezvous was hosted by the Adirondack Chapter on Saturday, August 28th at the Lake George Village docks. The morning’s chill air gave way to a near picture perfect day with pleasant summer temperatures. 59 boats were registered and about a dozen non registered boats showed up as well. Local Adirondack Chapter members rafted their boats together to accommodate new arrivals. The mix of boats was one of the best ever in recent years.
