Reflections of the 2010 Sunnyland Boat Show

Thanks to Andy Hoffman for the recap of the show


I am just flying home from the Sunnyland Antique Boat Festival and reflecting on all that has gone on over the last 4 days. First I would like to congratulate Terry Fiest, this year's director, and all of the volunteers of the Sunnyland Chapter for again hosting a wonderful Wood Boat Show. It takes a lot of work to get the show together and these volunteers can't be thanked enough for all they do.

It was a little windy Thursday while launching the boats and Sunday while retrieving, but otherwise the weather was perfect, high 70's and low 80's every day. There were hundreds of boats at this year's event - from Gar Woods, Chris Crafts, Century Boats, Jersey Skiffs, Amphicars, Outboard Race Boats, Antique Outboard Club Motors, and much more. There was definitely something for everyone.

There was a strong presence from the Century Boat Club as Century Boats were featured in this year's show. They had an excellent show of over 20 boats at the Thursday night Century Boat Reception sponsored by Hagerty Insurance.

Overall, the show, like always was very exciting with many boats to see. It is also good to see friends and customers who have been cooped up this winter like myself. I look forward to seeing them at other shows this summer. If you have not been to the Sunnyland Antique Boat Festival in the past, you should definitely make plans to attend next year. It's a show you don't want to miss.

We will also be displaying at the Keels and Wheels Show in Houston April 30th and May 1st. If you are planning to be there, please stop by and say hello!
