Springtime In New Zealand!
As we all say so long to summer, and boating season here in the U.S. ( Ya ya FLA! ) Anyway, as we park our boats away, they are saying hello to Boating Season in New Zealand. We got this report in from Phil Andrews who was part of the greeting party for some new boats to arrive from Lake Tahoe. And we now share them with you.
Partial to the Continental. It will tow a few skiers with that MCL. Enjoy your Summer!
I agree, Greg! I in the final phase of restoration on mine and noticed that this one has open bow chocks, which I prefer. My guy working on it doesn’t want to reinstall them until I find a set of the correct closed chocks!
First Woodie I have seen with a Mexican port of call. I’m sure it will like it better down under.
Love that grille on the Coronado! I wonder how many pounds of chrome that boat carried? What boat had the most pounds per foot?
Steve Lapkin and I have been discussing both these boats out of the defunct Tahoe Maritime Museum. Steve was one of the original founders of the Museum.
He tells me that Lago del Cielo is the name the Native American Indians gave to Lake Tahoe over 150 years ago, meaning Lake of the Sky. Also Lew Dobbins who knew the boats intimately says he started the big MCL back in June and she ran beautifully.
