Yankee Chapter: Making Waves With Old Outboards


Windsor/Hartford CT Meet - June 23th

Ray & Barbara had a spectacular day for their meet at the Barber Street Boat Ramp in Windsor CT. With sunny sky, temperatures in the 70's and lots of old outboards, it was almost perfect. On the down side, the river was very low, limiting access to many places we cruised the past two years, also it was very windy so high speed runs could be a tad squirrelly.

There was some swapping, but most folks ran their boats & enjoyed being out on the water. The trip down to Hartford was beautiful, the city never looked so good!

Thanks to Ray S. and family for sponsoring this great meet.

Here is a link to Keith M's excellent movie of the meet! Widsor Video
