Picture Of The Day. Towing $700,000 Worth Of Classic Boat Goodness.

Thanks to fellow Woody Boater Brian Robinson, we have this fun shot of what it takes to ship three of the finest Classic boats out there. These are the three boats purchased at the recent Mecum Monterey auction. All headed to one location in Minnesota to ONE buyer. We are with holding his name for privacy reasons. But we can report that the boats will not be alone and will feel right at home. DANG! I can’t even afford the shrink rap these days..

    Wow, those posts holding one boat above the other don't look very big in the photo. I'm sure they've done this before but…

    If you were listening carefully to the Mecum TV broadcast the buyers last name was announced. So in a way it's already been made public. A quick glance at the ACBS directory and it's obvious who bought these boats. My lips are sealed.

    that looks like a Cobra right up front……… pass on the other two. This is like Christmas. Guess what in the parcel. I agree with you Al those boats look very precarious stacked up the like that. I shipped my Arabian from Tahoe to NZ in a steel shipping container and worried myself sick I was going to open the container and find a pile of mahogany matchwood on the floor. If I had just bought those boats I would be three times as worried.
    Lucky worried guy though!!!! Three!!!

    That is one spoiled buyer. Must have a very understanding wife. Also could never question her shopping sprees ever.
