Here is the winner of the Craftsmanship Award at the Clayton Antique Boat Show

 

We can 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.
