Classic Minnesota Part 4: Live From The 2013 Gull Lake Classic Boat Show In Bar Harbor, MN

Saturday 2

Pat Carnes arrives in his very original, very rare 21′ Falls Flyer.

Saturday morning rush hour at Bar Harbor, MN as the majority of the boats arrive for the 2013 Gull Lake Classic Boat Show. But this is a good kind of rush hour as the great dock assistants and show organizers systematically move all the boats in to their designated slips. More than 60 boats are in attendance this year, with more on land display.

Every size and marque is represented at this years show, with an outstanding selection of both wooden and fiberglass classics, including 11 boats from Lee Anderson’s collection and 5 boats from John Allen’s collection. Some serious wood here again this year.

Saturday 5

A pair of rare Belle Isle Super Bearcats from the Lee Anderson collection.

Saturday 6

A very cool 1961 Larson 16′ All American hard top with 75 HP Evinrude Star Flight.

Saturday 4

Always a crowd favorite – the blond deck 1948 Century Seamaid.

With temperatures in the mid 90’s this afternoon, the traditional Saturday boat parade out on Gull Lake promises to be a big hit, and we will be there with cameras in hand on board Dave Bortner’s all original 1973 Century Coronado hard top c/w 8 track player and original 454 Crusader.

Stay tuned for more updates from Gull Lake – Classic Minnesota. WooHoooo!!

    I had to do a double-take on the Century Sea Maid because it wasn’t sporting 1948 hardware and 1948 blonding patterns. “Maid in 47” looks like a 1947 model. CQ

      Nice work Charley. I did that to see if the Century guys were paying attention…
