Gull Lake This Weekend! You May Want To Go Have Your Jaw Fixed Before You Go!
If you have a weak Jaw, or drool a lot, you may want to avoid Gull Lake this weekend. Then again, if you are into Jaw Dropping insane cool race boats, in an amazing setting, with wonderful people, Gull Lake is the place to be.Now it may apear that all that will be there are very cool signs.
But we have been assured that the actual boats will be there as well. We also understand that the lake is still full of drool from the big Gull Lake Show a couple years ago. We cannot emphasize enough what an amazing setting this is.
The Land-O-Lakes Vintage Boat Club is proud to help present the world class Gull Lake Boat Show on August 25th at Bar Harbor. The Gull Lake show is known for featuring some of the world’s most valuable and famous vintage boats, from the collections of renowned collectors John Allen and Lee Anderson, among others.
This year the marque class will be vintage race boats, some of the most spectacular and rare wooden boats ever made. Bar Harbor provides a perfect venue, with ample docks in a protected bay, with great food and refreshments available. The show begins at 9 am and continues until 4pm, capped off with a spectacular parade of participating boats. There will also be land displays and activities. And, admission is free.
The exhaust seems to be different in the Apache dock photo from the pics on the lake? Straight up in lake pics,swept back more and lower in dock photo. Angle of pic? Different times? Or different boats? (A-I and A-II)
Anyway, cool boats , would like to be there
The pipes become erect when…uh…um… Go ask your mother.
Well these boats are known as “woodies”.
I heard they were melting the varnish and charring the mahogany, so they were changed. Old photos show tin on the covering boards. Now they have a distinctive “pop” when the spent fuel ignites!
I don’t know if I could afford the signs!
If that show was in Boston, Mass. It would be in bah hahbah
Lee in my T-shirt at Gull Lake!
Didn’t see a picture of ole T 44. Won’t Terry be there with her boat ?
will Juno or Locpat III or Miss Daytonna or the 33 ft Gar woods or a century Thunderbolt
been looking forward to this event all year
Will there be any coverage of the submarine races?
WOW! that sucks.
NO! That sinks. Ouch!!!
It was a bad day, 4 hours later it was on the trailer and since then it has been back in the water on Boomimg Out bay and running well !!
Soon after Lee Anderson took ownership of Apache II (around 2013-14) Steve Lively and his maintenance crew modified the stringers which slightly lowered the Liberty V-12 in the hull – requiring the exhaust pipes to be reconfigured to a more upright position to clear the deck.
I had the pleasure of going for a “spirited” ride in Apache II with Steve after the modifications were completed, it was a very memorable (and loud) experience sitting directly behind that huge Liberty V-12 in the tiny cockpit. – Texx
Heeeeeey Texx welcome back! I recall seeing Apache 11 at the Tahoe show in 2008 with the stacks flat, so that all stacks up.
