    Looks like a great show. I love those long narrow excursion boats. They are a thing of the past in Michigan.

    The small tour boat in front of the judge Ben Wiles is the Pat II and is the old mail boat from the lake. The Finger Lakes Boat Museum restored her over the last 7 years I think it was and this was her first time back in 30 years. They converted her to electric motor
    It was a great weekend and show

      Skaneateles Lake. I also want to mention that it was a rare moment that Greg got to sit down. He had a crowd around him basically all weekend that we’re asking him questions all the time and he is so willing to share all is knowledge on both how he builds them and the history of the real boats

      This show was on Skaneateles. The Wine Country show the last week was on Keuka.

      Tobler had surgery a week and a half ago, so I was home serving as a dog recovery nurse and missed both shows this year.
