Saturday, August 27, 2016:  
The Annual Gull Lake Classic Boat Show.  
 Many hundreds of people showed up to walk the docks. 
They wanted to see boats of all types on the water.
Maliciously restored wood boats ere a big attraction.
This one was from the 1960s.
Others were from the 1920s.
Nicely decorated too.
There was enthusiasm from young and old alike.
Here's one from the early 1900s.
Who wouldn't like a seat in this one?
Aqua color from the 1960s. 
Then there was the Amphicar from 1961.  It could drive down the road at 70 miles per hour, then into the water to cruise at 7 knots.  A real novelty at the time, but it didn't catch on. 

Quote of the day:    Paula could like this car.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
