Commander 44 AlexanderDon’t miss this brilliant photo double header

Two photos rolled in this week and we can’t choose, so you get them both!! Bonus!

First, the powerboat shot, possibly of the year, which came our way from the nice folks at Chris Craft. It features Alexander J. vaulting over the Commander 44. Very impressive.

Allan Margaret CartoonThe other brilliant POTW came from Rhonda at The Toronto Area Hospice Regatta . It’s a beautiful shot from 2017 by Elle Bruce of Alan and Margaret Gibson holding a cartoon portrait by Cartoon Bob. (Bob will be at TAHR again this year!) The essence of the photo of the week.

These two set a very high standard for the upcoming year – but I know you’re up to it. Got a great shot? Send it in and make it the Photo of the Week.

The rules are simple. It has to be your shot taken in and around boats or from a boat. Or anything else boat related. Or anything you feel is appropriate – sunsets, regattas dock parties – whatever you’ve found interesting.

You can imagine,at the GroupeBeneteau dealer meeting in Michigan last fall where all the Four Winns, Scarab, Wellcraft, and Glastrondealers had come to see the latest new models, the docks were lined up with gleaming brand-new boats to show the dealers and media – and they certainly put on a show! But for me, the Scarab 255 Open was an immediate stand out. This is a boat that breaks new ground and brings fresh thinking and interpretation of the boating experience to a wide range of buyers.

We had a quick look around but the test drives would have to wait until the next day.
