Gravenhurst - Eye Candy

Post by BruceDow »

The ACBS show at Gravenhurst was amazing.

It was a fantastic day, and there was a great variety of classic boats...

Here's a sample..

Vintage police boat and "go slow cruiser"... great name.

Double WOW. Craftmanship all the way.

I see the boat/car. Guy owned one when I was very much younger. It was cool to see it drive down the boat ramp and right into the water.

Coincidentally, there was an article in our local newspaper about the "Amphicars" about a month ago...

Apparantly the front wheels act as the rudders...

The article says they "Drove like a Dream, and Swam like a Duck"...

Ray... I took the picture because of the unique sloped at the back of the deck, and "waterline transom"... I do not recall the builder, and can't seem to find a term to describe that style...

Anyone?
