We've entered True North, our '67 CC Commander 31', in our first boat show. https://acbs.org/…/2018-glacier-lakes-antique-classic-boat…/ This is the inaugural year for the show here in Green Bay. There are over 20 boats entered, mostly antique runabouts. We're sorta the "big girl" at the dance. What a great group of folks!

Good luck, Greg! Let us know how it goes.

With that red runabout burgee up front, the transition from the woodies to you is seemless ;)

Thanks for the well wishes Matt! I don't mean to boast, but I'm pretty confident we've got a lock on Best In Class... because we're the Only In Class. :)

They don’t put that on the trophy, Greg, so a win is a win!!

Greg, it looks really nice.  I notice your mast is also bare teak as is mine.  Does it have evidence of previously being white?  Mine has a few spots in the grain  showing it was probably originally white like the other 35's.  Post the trophy presentation!

I believe the mast has always been varnished. I didn't notice any paint when stripping it last winter.

Well?? How’d it go, Greg?

All in all it was a really fun experience, thanks for asking Matt! Met some really nice folks and saw some really cool boats!

It's odd but I have no idea if any prizes were awarded or not... To end the show, we all took part in a boat parade thru downtown Green Bay. By the time we got our boat put away afterwards most of the other boats had packed up and left. I guess I'll find out online. 

To be fair though it was about 87 degrees and very humid, with not even a little breeze. I'm sure everyone just wanted to be in air conditioning!

Looks beautiful!
