I went down to the Tahoe Keys Marina for the 5th annual South Lake Tahoe classic wooden boat show, and I got to see a bunch of great antique boats and classic boat reproductions; and got to talk to the passionate people who restore and care for these amazing boats. I got to talk to John Walti, the vice-commodore of the vintage division of the California Speedboat Association, who showed me the FT Barron perpetual trophy with every race winner since the club was founded in 1934. I also got to talk to the owners of the 1924 gold-cup racer the "Baby Skipalong", which was widely considered to be the fastest boat on Lake Tahoe in the late 1920s. I got to talk to the owner of a reproduction 1938 Ventnor Gold-cup boat that was originally designed to carry a 500Lbs bomb in it's bow; as well as...

This boat hull had been abandoned in the woods for over 20 years. . I was going to cut it into pieces and haul it away but it had that old style you don't see in new boats today. I found out it was a 1959 Loan Star (Monterey) 14 foot runabout , built in Texas. It is powered by a Kawasaki 639cc , 65 horse power jet ski engine. Top speed so far has been 35 mph and can skim over 4 inches of water. I paid $200 for the jet ski, $300 for parts and materials. Labor was about 100 hours of getting up at 4 am and doing at least 2 hours of work every day during the week.
3 rounds of my Grandpa kicking some ass again at the Antique Race Boat Regatta! This time it was in Clayton, New York. Unfortunately I wasn't able to attend this one but he was able to send me some footage of the event and my mom was there to help get some extra shots! It turned out pretty well! I would like to thank everyone that attended and also for all the positive feedback my Grandpa received. It means alot!
