Zip - Best Contemporary Classic, Lexington, Michigan

Postby tgauthier » Mon Jul 16, 2018 11:16 am

I am happy to report that my Zip was awarded, "Best Contemporary Classic" at the Lexington, Michigan, Antique and Classic Boat Show this weekend, located on one of the great lakes (Lake Huron). Lexington is a great town, fantastic marina and wonderful people. Beautiful wooden boats.

Congratulations, Ted! It's well-deserved!

That's also a very familiar-looking Squirt in the background... ;)

Thanks for all the complements.. And Yes, Neel. My hope is to bring it back to a gathering. We had so much fun when we last attended and met some wonderful friends. Neel, I was showing off photos of your Gentry at the boat show. Your boat is one of my favorites.
