It was a grand day for our boat show this year, the weather on Saturday July 27th was sunny and very warm, and the crowd had a great time. There were 25 boats on display this year. Lotte, a 48’ 1928 Lake Union Dreamboat made a reappearance after a ten year restoration by her owner and was visited by many. Below are the 2019 Show Winners. The photographs were taken by John Dupee unless otherwise noted. For more photos of the event please see the 2019 Boat Show Gathering under the Event Roundup
