(And I am glad to see other folks posting pictures as well! Very Cool. Thanks)

Well, as you an see, the DAY of Gray surely wasn't in the least drab!! No, Sir! Clear, hot and all-in-all, a really great day on the Lake!! Just the way a Fourth of July weekend is supposed to be!

Please note; I do try to make the captions as accurate as possible. If there an error, please PM me with the correct information so I can make corrections Thanks.

Still More to come...

Tim & Craig - Thanks for the nice photos. Great for us landlocked skippers to get a feel for the day :-).

I appreciate the detailed captions, Craig. I realize not all photographers have your in depth knowledge of the Club's members & ships. I also appreciate all the work that goes into making a photo display like this, thanks again.

Tim, or Craig - Is "Navigator" (Temple shot, green hull, 4 lifeboats) a commuter vessel? I know that tugboats used to be able to carry excursion passengers, prior to CG regulations for saving life. But Navigator does not quite fit my internal picture of a tugboat.

Brooks She was a River transport in Africa. the model was a twin steam originally, converted to electric in the 60's, retired in the 90's, on the list for a full restoration and modern electronics when we get some time in schedule of volunteers.

Who owns the proboat coast guard boat? Would you be able to contact them to see if they would like to sell it.
