Here Comes The Sun-ish, Thanks To YNOT Yachts! Algonac Sunday Morning.
Isn’t this just the way life is. You drive for 10 hrs and the rain dumps on you and the second you leave the sun comes out! Ahhhhhhhhhlgonac! its not that we were not warned that Michigan weather can be like this. The rain followed us all the way home to Virginia, mmmm maybe it was us? But thanks to Bert Harris, the Ladonnes from YNOT Yachts and the Algonac sun gods, we have some glorious action shots out on the perfect Algonac water. So without further adoooo. Here is the magic. Happy Monday!
And this was just a fraction of the over 100 boats that were ready on Friday. Stay tuned tomorrow for more on the Algonac Marine Cast Co. and more after that. Including a feature of one of our favorite boats of the trip!
Eulipion was the surprise of the show for me. What an awesome boat. With modern power, that big boat was hanging right with the Hornet. Puff was a really cool little cruiser too. And even my kids got their Woodyboater debut in that shot of the Super Sport. Your drive home sounds like mine, 250 of the 292 miles in the rain.
Thanks for the continuing coverage.
I believe that’s a Commander SS and not an XK. Same boat essentially with the SS being the predecessor to the XK.
Thanks i made the edit .. Wow, the shots came in very late last night.. Amazing stuff. Tomorrow there is more..
Those sure are some BEEEAUTIFUL boats!
I find myself more and more attracted to the XK22’s every time I see one.
Looks like a good time was had by all, except for those poor soles stuck in traffic in the rain.
Matt, you should have stayed on Sunday. Now you will have to come back next year so Suzy and Jimmy can go to the Old Club. Thanks for all the promo and good words about our show. Now you know how Michigan boaters make the best of lousy weather!
After all the blustery weather, last evening and this morning are absolutely tranquil out here. The water is calm as glass. Fortunately, the weather didn’t dampen anyone’s spirit. It was a great time this past weekend. I met many great people.
Great weekend wet or dry! Lots of incedible boats and wonderful people. We missed Chris Smith this year.
Yes, this is Michigan, and even though the show was a wash out, everyone I spoke with endured it with good spirits. I really want to thank those if you who traveled so far. And, yes , Matt, you missed a good ride Sunday. It was my first ride on Black Beauty and what a blast!
What a header, Matt & Texx! And Black Beauty — magnificent, just magnificent.
All of us at the 40th North Coast Ohio show this weekend shared your pain up there in Michigan. Rained all night Friday, then most of Saturday. Still, it was good to see everyone, with or without their boats.
What’s the express cruiser next to the Red and White in the stationary photo? Looks like a steel hull. Is it a modified Steercraft? Or did Steercraft make such a model? Interesting…
As for your weather…
You nailed it Alex!
“Chloe” Permacraft (1955 I think)
The other express cruiser is a 1955 PermaCraft named Chloe.
Matt, Thanks for coming and all your kind words. Looking forward to the next time.
Darn, Matt, forgot my dang coffee cup!
