Now that the season is winding down, how about we all put up a shot of the classic that we ran this season.
Thank you all. :) :)

I'm hoping for a few more weekends on the water to view some fall foliage, the leaves are just now starting to change down here in north Georgia! It's been a great summer though, 'cept for the "sand bar incident"! (Live and learn) :laugh:

Thanks Mark
I would just like to see the pics of all of our boats.
I thought that would be pretty neat all in one thread.

It's not a great picture, but I love it! Maybe I'll post a few... :)

I should add I calculate I put about 200 gallons of gas (and oil of course) through this motor this year. It didn't get "dialed in" till September really, but we had fun anyways.

By Far not a Resto but just some good fun bringing the old girl back from the salvage yard, thanks to my donor 74 glasstron 15.6 and its motor. My 1960 17' Wagemaker Empire Clipper. New to the whole powerboat thing but sure like the older ones best.

other than lake testing which does not count as pure family time on the water .......not work related we only got out once in our Cruisers Inc which is for sale. Great ride and regardless of the fact it only happened once it was the best to be out there as Mommy Daddy and the two boys! I never got my G3 on the water but she is not far off.
So we got out in our Royal Vacationer 570 and if not next summer the summer after we will be on the water in our Cruisers Inc Barnegat 25
P.S. Frank the photo of you airborn in the PC is AWESOME

You know what they say Jim, ignorance is bliss... :laugh:

All the Cruisers Incs I see are big cruisers! I had no idea they had such humble beginnings.

Hello everyone,
You guys have some great looking boats! This is my first post, just joined the community today. Here is my old girl, a 15ft 1966 Cruisers Inc. 1522 Bimini. I want to completely restore her someday but for now, she gets me on the water for some fishing.

OK, not the best pics but will do for now. MY 1960 Wagemaker Clipper. Got her in the water once to tweak the motor after getting her started after 30 years.


She's not completely done yet but she's seaworthy and ready to go. Too darn windy here in Soutehrn Maryland to take her out this weekend. May take a half day this week and take her out. Need to blow the carbon out before winterizing and finish restoration.

Yes she is. I have the cover stripped right now so I can repaint it. Put it on so the engine didn't look bare.

Great to see all of these old boats getting some love.

Here are a couple of my '60 Reinell last June. This was my 1st time out in the boat since getting it over a year ago. I used it a few times but now it's dry docked 'till I can put in a new transom. I will also be installing one of my modded vintage Starflites with the 100+ powerhead inside.
