DO NOT invite Mark Setterholm to your show if you want anyone else to win Best Of Show. He did it again. Bella Donna WINS BIG, in fact I have awarded it best of show for Reedville and he doesn’t even know where Reedville is!
One of the great joys of not giving a crap about spelling is you get to make up your own words. Sausage Sunday didnt seem right for today’s story on two shows that happened yesterday, and trying to do one without the other seemed like I had to pick favorites. So.. I made a smash up of them. Trust me, you will be able to tell the difference. But the fun part is here on WoodyBoater does it really matter? It’s all one big fat show! So without further adoo..doo! Here we go. A huge thanks to Dane Anderson who sent us in part of the Shöwgåsbord.
Meanwhile in Reedville. Yah, thats rain. KABOOM DUMP run the bilge rain! Stinky smells better now and this is the first real cleaning of Buttercup!
Meanwhile Mark Setterholm is running around winning everyone’s awards.. Come November the weather gods will pay him back!
back in Reedville we all hung around in a pavillion and looked at the same old extension cords at the flea market.
Royce Humphrys and his Riva and VERY sporty Italian shirt are enjoying. the sun.
Mericica was on display in Reedville – This boat was made by a 9 year old!
1953 Chris Craft Special Sportsman “Lemonhead” Kirk Lillie, Mark Setterholm’s boat Yellow is so the color this year.
Yellow on a Whirlwind. Jim Sheafers amazing little time capsule
Speaking of space capsules-Del VanEmmerick has done it again. Check out this bizarre one. 22′ IO, pretty sure Spacely Sprockets made the drive.
Meanwhile up on Lake Minnitonka, a Whirldwind-ish boat zips around 1955 Thompson Thomboy Andreas Jordahl Rhude
Eric Zelman’s amazing Wolverine. Eric has gone deep into this all and like us, has a barn full of projects.
Gull Wings open. -1961 Chris Craft 21′ Continental “Over the Top” Daryl Konrad
Okay, now this Deadrise was hands down the Mark Setterholm best of show winner. Wondering why this would smoke WECATCHEM? Or Bella Donna. Just wait.
Clean and perfect
She was just finished. no fish guts!
Around here, they carve in the details. Fun Crab Door Stopper detail.
Are you starting to see why this Deadrise is a Setterholm Show winner?
How about now?
Miss Jean II is insane amazing – Evrything works, even has a small light in the compass. The door clicks shut. It runs, and well. Jaw Meet floor! Ricky Little of Colonial Beach Owner

Meanwhile back on Lake Minnitonka!
Century having fun on the Lake
Wonderful bow lines

Sorry to hear about the weather at your show. I dread the day we are forced into a parking garage due to bad weather. At least people still visited. There’s always next year.
Looks like two great shows but only one offered the free boat wash down while the other only offered varnish and interior damaging UV rays all day. I know which one I would have rather been at. Actually, I should have been at Buffalo!
By the way, Penn Yan has two N’s and then one. It is short for PENNsylvania YANkee territory which makes it easy to remember where the extra N goes as long as you know how to spell Pensylvania or Yannkee which is a good bet you don’t so I don’t know why I am telling you this.
I was lucky enough to attend the BSLOL show this weekend in Minnetonka on short notice. Matt, you guys need to make this a must see event next year! Special thanks to Dane Anderson, Mark Setterholm, Dave Bortner, Dan Nelson and crew for the hospitality, organization and warm welcome along with running a spectacular event! Marks Riva was on good company, but someone has to see his fabulous Lyman!
Nice show in Buffalo with their return to the Buffalo Launch Club. Good turnout of boats and spectators despite a chilly breeze adding to the rather gray day.
The long range forecast for southeast Michigan next weekend is low 80’s and sunshine. It’s a shame there isn’t some kind of Antique and Classic boat show to go to.
Sure would like to see more of Mericica…
As a genuine Swede I really like your new word Shöwgåsbord!
Nice composite posting! Best of two great events…..hurricane coming….I may not be GOING BOATING this weekend….John in Va
That “Whirlwindish” looking boat is a 1955 Thompson Thomboy called “Thommy” made by Thompson Bros. Boat Mfg. Co. of Peshtigo, Wisconsin – the largest builder of outboard boats in the world ! She is strip built hull, western red cedar below the spray rail and Philippine mahogany above. White oak steam bent frames. This particular Thomboy is in unrestored, original condition.
