A snowbird shows photos from southwest Florida (Naples) and southwest Connecticut (Ridgefield) and New England and other places he goes.
There's a race up here where all the boats must be made from cardboard. Go figure! These are beauties.
Those ol' boats are real beauties! I bet John F. Kennedy zipped around Cape Cod in one, non?
Jack, those are gorgeous I had never seen one of these.
If I was in town, I would definitely been there Jack, beautiful old boats in excellent condition by the look of it.
It's a beauty and probably coveted by every man, woman, and child who saw it!
Beautiful, beautiful. They made me think of Cary Grant for some reason. Did he drive one of them in a movie? Never mind. They are stunning without even being on the move. Thanks, Jack!
My dad had a special fondness for these boats. I remember once going through the Chris-Craft factory and watching the boats being built. My dad always talked about sailing around the world. I think the closest he came was a cruise to Alaska.
Congratulations with your 100th follower, John. That's difficult to achieve.
Jack, I got so enthralled with your boat photos that I forgot to answer your question. Yes, I am involved with the group that has formed to open the Tovrea Castle. They have formed a board of directors and my best friend David is on that board. He asked me to help him organize the docents and do the docent training. It should be fun.
I do love the boats! And what terrific captures! They remind me of one an uncle of mine had years and years ago and I do remember how fun it was to go skimming over the water in it!! Thanks for the memories, Jack! Enjoy your day!Sylvia
These are awesome. That would be something to see and maybe take for a ride.
Oh, how I love those boats!I saw a race in front of Monte Carlo once, elegance in action!and I like this name very much, "Mahogany"..
Though I prefer sailboats, I have to say these are beauties!
Those are nice looking boats. I could picture lazily trolling around Venice in one of these!
They are all just beautiful! I especially like those turquoise colored seats in the second and third shots.
A fabulous experience to see the craftsmanship in those boats!
Beautiful boats Jack, beautifully presented! Each part of the world has its beautiful and its less attractive sides...Thank you for your kind comments on my blog.
These boats remind me of the boat-builder's craft. I used to know one, long since deceased, who built boats for the Lake Erie crowds. He gave me a scale model of one he built and my daughter has it.He built his boats out of the finest woods in the middle of his barn on his farm. He ran the farm most of the year and fiddled with boat building in the winter.He made more money building one boat each year than he did farming all year long with all that work.
Wow! I've never seen anything like this before. Beautiful!
They are gorgeous, Jack! stylish and elegant!
There is absolutely nothing like a Chris Craft! Members of my family had them when I was a kid and I can still remember the way they smelled and looked and handled.Yes, we've done a bit of traveling...up to Tennessee and back.Beautiful area.
These boats are so beautiful, we don't see many of these in our waters! I am glad people keep them in this wonderful shape.
Beautiful boats! My friends in Holland would love to see these!Thanks for sharingLeontienwww.fourleafcloverdairy.blogspot.com
I've never understood why people used to make boats out of mahogany. It's really dense and heavy, isn't it? But then what I know about boat design could fit in a thimble. It does look very beautiful.
Wouldn't it be nice to cruise down the river in one of those beauties!
So perfect energy of Summer!Beautiful boats, your pictures are wonderful!HugsLéia

What beauties, Jack!
Very handsome boats! Reminds me of what I used to see when I lived up north.
