Early morning arrivals for the annual Antique Boat Show at the Meredith town docks, showing Church Landing in the background along with the Town Docks Restaurant. This is a contemporary view featuring a 1928 26' Sea Lyon triple cockpit runabout, one of the original models built by John Hacker. Already tied up is a 1947 17' Chris Craft Deluxe runabout marked by the bullnose bow and automotive-style steering wheel introduced in post-war models, along with the art deco cowling on the engine hatch. Pulling in behind is a legend in the antique boat world, the late George Johnson, in his 1929 26' Chris Craft upswept triple cockpit runabout, "Workboat". Also included is "Impshi" a Gold Cup raceboat, a Lyman outboard skiff, a 1950's Chris Craft cruiser. An Italian-built Riva idles in, and the "Great Escape", formerly the US mailboat "Tonimar", emerges from the mist in the distance.
