I plan on doing one show at a distance this year and would like to pick one with a good crowd. What is everyone planning for this summer?

Generally, we do Silver Lake 1st Saturday in June (usually fairly small) and Hammondsport on Keuka Lake 3rd weekend in July. We bring two vehicles when we do these meets, drag the tiny travel trailer along, especially now that we have a puppy. We stay at the grand canyon of NYS, Letchworth State Park for Silver Lake, and the beautiful Keuka State Park for the Hammondsport meet. We have reservations for Silver Lake for Friday and Saturday nights, and stay at Keuka as a major summer vacation, this year for about 1 and 1/2 weeks. We love Keuka Lake!

although its an hour farther for us silver lake is much calmer for our boat but there will definetly be a larger crowd at keuka, and keuka is a much bigger and prettier lake. ron

We are planning to stay a while for the Hammondsport meet as well.

Wondering if you could email the info on the campground you stayed at or post it here.

Thanks

The way things are going right now, it is getting doubtful that we will make it to Silver Lake. If I can't get the boat done, we're not going, and will cancel reservations at Letchworth. No time to work on the boat, and need stuff that I don't have cash for.

I would suggest home improvements will give you more lasting enjoyment on a daily basis than a boat anyways John.

I need to do some repairs to our tiny travel trailer, as we may be selling it if we buy a larger one, i.e. 15-16'. We hope to take a look at one soon, like weekend after next over near Rochester. If we buy it, it will be coming to Keuka with us. I do hope my boat will be ready to go by then!

Good luck buddy.

While it is true that the physical improvements will be there longer for others to see, everyone needs to enjoy life and the memories will be there for a long time as well.

All work and no play makes Johnny, (and Frank) a dull boy.

Get out and enjoy the boats and your friends while you can!

Let me know in a couple weeks if you think you guys can make it so I know how much food to get, we will be having grilled chicken and dogs after water play time, hope to see you there!

I have suggested (never, never told!) to the little woman that I need a puppy-free weekend to get the boat closer to being ready. Closer meaning get the jack plate mounted and the motor on. I still need to figure out how to wire this jack plate. I have an idea. I need to get my kill switch wired in too. She wanted the puppy, so for mother's day, she can have the puppy all day long. ;>}

If I'm successful this weekend, we'll be at Silver Lake. Still have a lot of other things to do, but sorta need a working motor to have a boat that is worth bringing to a meet. Time is shrinking, as a week from tomorrow we're on a road trip that will consume the entire day to look at another travel trailer. We'll see how that goes. If we buy it, it will follow us to Letchworth. Later this summer I would do a few finishing touches on Spot and sell that one to recoup a bit of cash.

We're probably coming over for the meet boat or no boat. Tim owes me a piston ring, plus we had planned to bring over some stuff (our old lawn mower and string trimmer) for Max & Kimmy.

Still having problems mounting the jack plate, so still no motor on this past weekend. Next Saturday is out as well, so we'll see how it goes this week. May need another $100 investment to get this jack plate working, but cash is very tight, so that may put off the whole thing till July.

I've been to both Buffalo and Hammondsport and can give an unbiased analysis on both (since neither are local for me). I enjoyed both but the biggest difference is that Hammondsport is better for having a boat in the water and Buffalo is better for land based activities.

Keuka Lake (and probably any of the finger lakes) are great for running our boats around. There is plenty of distance to cover and the chop is comparatively small. However, there is not a lot of activity on land so the latter part of the day tends to drag. I wouldn't do Hammondsport again if I didn't have a dock space.

On the other Buffalo has a lot going on land. A great clubhouse and venue. A large number of boats to go look at. Lots of venders and booths. Races and demonstrations in the river. Always something going on around the club house plus a 100 car classic car show. On the other hand, the Niagara River is rough. Any boat our size would just pound. I would not want to run the Aqua Ray there. This is a show you could show up to without a boat and enjoy.

I know there are probably people out there who will take exception to some of my comments, but this is my observation and reaction. I would go back to both again.

Who is in for H this year? If I decide to go, it will be a last minute decision.

Re:What shows are people going to this year? 6 years 11 months ago #64098

Ron, Buffalo will always be the weekend after Labor Day, as I suspect is Tuckerton, so I guess we won't be seeing you there.

Todd, good assessment of the shows.

I'll be going to Buffalo Show, missed it last year because of work.

I don't think we will make it to Hammondsport this year. I had planned to go and took vacation time off around the show, but I have no tow vehicle of my own at this time, so that would make it kind of tough. Lack of interest around here also played into the decision, but maybe next year. I think it is a good show, and a beautiful location. I agree on the lack of afternoon activities and would also register in the water next time. New people running the show this year, and not sure if they are really on top of things, it wasn't like when Terry ran it that's for sure.

What ever you guys decide, I hope you have a great time, and if you decide to make the trek to Buffalo, look me up...

I'll be at Hammondsport this year, probably next, etc, just because we love the place. This year the weekend you have the show in Buffalo we will be camping with a couple of Gail's sisters and there families up at Lake George. They will be in tents, we will be in a little travel trailer with heat and A/C...

Tony, if you're going to have it judged, stick a period correct motor on it. That's an automatic 10 point deduction for that motor.

We had about 10% no show at the Buffalo show due to weather.

It did clear up and all the boats ran a little later in the day.

River was smooth as glass for our run around the island Sunday morning...

We're off to Fredonia NY to see Max, Kimmy, and our grandson Mason that weekend, but also Tim Calmes for some 1350 stuff and Terry Holland for some '47 Old Town stuff. Also have a few other stops to make. Busy fellow!

Enjoy it Ron. Get that old Custom Craft out and beat the heck out of it!
