Clayton 2012 – Fantastic Weather And Fantastic Boats!

A stunning Thousand Island Sunset. This is a perfect time of year for Woody boating in the area!

Thanks to fellow Woody Boater Natashia Kadimik  we can get a glimpse of what it was like up in Clayton on Saturday. No descriptions of the day, so.. you know what that means. We get to make them up!

A nice sunset cruise

Even the big birds love it there. Watch out above. INCOMING!

A nice ride on a nice day. NICE!

Just dont sit there, get out on that water!

Some cool post war action. OK its not action, its just sitting there. But its cool, and its free to you, so stop complaining! LOVE THOSE Jr’s

Cool boat, neat color.

Ahhh there’s the traditional shot of the show.

Love the water there, you can actually see the rock you are about to wreck your prop on!

Ahhh, the inside of the museum is a living show as well. So if you still want to go see Clayton, you can enjoy a wonderful day at the museum.

This show attracts some of the nicest boats on the east coast. Dang!

Heading out for a fun time on the water.

Thanks Natashia for the fun pics from Clayton.

    Just FYI, the Riva is a Rudy not a Junior. Very similar to a Series 3 Junior but came after and are made of glass. Great boats!

    I saw John’s new purchase!!! You will have to go visit John and Kim in person to see this true treasure. I hope to visit them next summer to have a drink aboard this one of a kind boat and help raise the flag.
    We had a great time in Clayton Thanks to everyone there.

    See you in Manotick or Buffalo.

      So nice to see three generations of the Keyes family having a great time with their 30′ Hacker “Grandpa’s Dream”. A great family with a great boat. Can’t wait to raise the flag with you guys next summer.

    Attended most of the auction. Interesting results with some real bargains on the non-reserve vessels. Most shocking was the Pacemaker Cruiser going for an unbelievable $250. Yeah, $250. The auctioneers had to work hard to get even that paltry sum. The 18ft. Lyman went for $1150. The marblehead cruiser went for $2200. Reserve boats stalled out at about half the asking. (The reserves were not unreasonable either). Well attended auction with about 100+ folks on hand. Had to leave about 2/3rds of the way through right about time the CC Cadet was on the block. Judging from response to that point I doubt the CC reached reserve.
