Classic Boat Show in Wisconsin's Northwoods - Be there! or Be square! Marc is looking for those 60 & 70s tri-hulls to Glass up the event.








We had a great turnout at The Boathouse last year.

Guess I better finish the bunks on my trailer so that I can drag something up there that floats. I will have to read and see if they have shore displays in case what I bring doesn’t float yet. It would be great to see more glass. Seems a few more show up each year. Nice show last year and worth taking my only day off just to see Mama Mia and her owners! The deal still stands for Doc Frankenmerc… if he can fly out, he can stay here free and I will give him use of the 20’ Hydrostream Yoyager YT tunnel vee with the 2.4 Merc for use in the show and to tour the chain of lakes. Maybe Moma Mia could lead the way??? Just throwing it out there. PM me Doc if you are interested! Hopefully a few more Glassic members will show up as well?

Hitched a really fast ride on this beauty last June.

Thanks for posting Terry, some magnificent craft there – the likes of which are scarce in other parts of the world.
Ken.

I see where they are moving the show to Torpy park which is on the north side of the tiny Island city instead of the south side… I said tiny because it is only about 5 city blocks away from old location. I saw where they will have both in-water and on-land display areas adjacent to each other. I need to register for something to drag up there. Terry, did you do that boat parade in front of the ski show grandstands in the evening? Wish I could have stayed for that. Just listening to the jet boat motor running was worth the trip, let alone when many of the inboards do a start up for all to hear. If you love boats, water, people and old fashioned candy, ice cream, popcorn shops as well as good cafes, taverns and restaurants all within a few blocks of the boats, it is a nice event to visit. Mama Mia could use some old Fiberglassics company so hope to see some more members there.

Hello Ken,
If you are up over this Winter come and see us in June.

Hey Mark,
Good shot of the Island City.

Highway 51 cuts through town with The Boathouse at the south end on bottom right and the Minaquabats Ski Show grandstands center. Thirsty Whale and home of the Summer Hummers at lower left and Torpy Park is top center where 51 takes you north out of town.


Mama Mia! was in the parade last year and it was a blast.

I heard from Marc and plans are on again for a Welcome Party Thursday night at Lepping’s Dry Dock.


Lots of great photos at the MACBS facebook page.

The Dr. is in the house. Hope you folks can make it up there again.

Thanks,
Terry

I attended that show for a few years in a row but many years ago. I was thinking about going up again. Was thinking about bringing a 1941 Thompson wooden sailboat for display (she spent almost all her life near Minocqua). But I could bring my classic glass Chris-Craft by Thompson Corsair outboard.

Hello Andreas,

Hope to see you up there for sure and either boat will really add to the show.


Given a choice I’d probably go for the Chris-Craft but with the local history link to the Thompson sailboat it would be an excellent on land display.


Found this in the 1941 Thompson catalog.

Thanks,
Terry

Hey Andreas… if you have the proper tow set up, it is legal to tow 2 trailers in Wisconsin if you don’t exceed total length limits lol. I see pickups pulling 5th wheels with boat trailers or quad trailers often. Maybe recruit another member from the region to tow the other boat for you and bring both??? Ok - either one would be great to see!

I can’t wait to get up there if only to eat. Found this supper club right by Patricia Lake just outside town. Nothing like an authentic Northwoods supper club.

And then gotta go back to Ottos. We were here last year, and they have a great Brat. Skinned, butterflied, char-grilled and served with a side of kraut. Imported Warsteiner on tap and of course the Cow.

The Cows we had at The Boathouse last year really hit the spot. Gotta go back there and try the Signature Hungarian Mushroom Soup. Never had it but said to be excellent.

Been to Murtaugh’s a couple of times and is famous for Rueben sandwiches and lovely barmaids.

As always Terry - excellent information and advice to people wanting to give this a try. Wish it were summer already… but I do still have winter progress to make.

I sent in my registration form today. That should motivate me to get a few more things checked out and working... like Nav lights if I want to cruise the evening parade display. Hope to see more members with their boats. Hoping for good weather too!
