Here is the winner of the Craftsmanship Award at the Clayton Antique Boat Show
trace the boat back to the early 70's. At that time it was on Great
Sancandaga Lake in NY. In the late 70's, it was sold to a fellow in
Rotterdam, NY. It sat in his back yard, covered, for more than 20 years.
I purchased the boat in 2001 and preceded to give it a 100% restoration.
Every aspect of the boat including engine, chrome. hull, etc was brought
up to show standards. The restoration was completed in 2002 and the boat
was shown in some shows in CT. that year. It always took a 1 St. place.
This summer I took it to Clayton for the first time. I was very
surprised to receive the Bradley award for "outstanding
craftsmanship". Bugsy is
currently at the Antique Boat Connection, http://www.antiqueboat.com/,
and is for sale. I hate to sell it, but there are many other restorations
which I want to do. Lee Heinzman (203)
