Did Lemonhead Make It To The Whitefish Chain Show?
Minnesota Woody Boater reporter Dane Anderson reports in from the Whitefish Chain of lakes annual boat show. So, Dane did Lemonhead make it? Take it away Dane.
Here are some photos from the Whitefish Chain show.
Saturday was the 30th Annual Whitefish Chain Antique and Classic Wood Boat Rendezvous. Once again our host was the Fabulous Moonlite Bay in Crosslake.
The boat show volunteers and restaurant staff do a great job of making everyone feel welcome starting with the white glove treatment from the dock hands making sure that every boat gets to the docks without a scratch or finger print.
Yes thanks Dane, but did Lemonhead make it?
Well Matt, we are happy to report that the large patio and deck overlooking the docks sports an outdoor bar and grill with burgers, brats, and pulled pork sandwiches for the show attendees. Also available is full lunch menu service with indoor or outdoor seating. This boat show is also famous for providing a capable staff of volunteers at the launch ramp to help get everyone’s boats off and on their trailers safe and secure.
Yes, Dane, very happy about the Brat’s DID LEMONHEAD MAKE IT?
Thanks Matt, There is always a wide selection of classic boats present at this show. This year there were 48 entries from small cedar strip rowboats to large antique launches and everything in between.
DANG DANE? You running for office? DID LEMONHEAD MAKE IT?
Oh, why yes, I am running for office.
Oh one more thing, Mark Sutterholm brought a very nice Riva…..
Some small boat. It was yellow.
So it made it.
Sure, want photos?
There are others? Want to see them. YES DANE!
Well, we got it all I hope! Thanks Dane for the fun report!
Glad he was able to find Lemmon Head. That boat is so camouflaged, it virtually disappears at the dock.
I know, sometimes all these muted colors just blend in, I wish he had pushed it a little further. Not sure how. Maybe a black light? Does it come with a bug zapper? Do you have to wear sunglasses even on a cloudy day?
Lemonhead. Interesting for sure, but I just can’t swallow it.
Congratulations Mark and Kirk for making an impossible deadline with Lemonhead. The Riva ain’t bad, either.
Where’s the DONZIs?
Gotta love Lemonhead! Truly unique and well done. Wish that I could have attended!
I just found one thing with louder colors than Lemonhead: Bortner’s shorts!
It’s no longer just the shorts. Dave didn’t even get a rope to the dock before he got his first complement. Not for the stunning Coronado, but for his “outfit” complete with matching blue and red shoes.
Nice to see “Over the Top” out and about. I remember the evening Sandi and I helped name that one.
Don’t jump past that 29′ Sportsman so fast. That boat is AWESOME! Only 4 hulls made. Interestingly they offered 6 different engine combinations for them, but only built 4 hulls.
That guy Kirk is the perfect pilot for Lemmon Head. If the boat is ever for sale, he should go with it. Its the hat. Great Photog!
Thanks for not mentioning the hail, Dane!
Mark and Lemonhead two years ago before their historic first voyage on Whitefish, 10 minutes away from sinking!
Thanks for posting this pic Stu. If you look closely, you can see the yellow bottom color peeking through the bottom paint near the stem of the boat. What a day that was! 🙂
Wow, that photo is great.
