Everybody loves a parade – especially when antique and classic boats are featured!

Smith Mountain Lake Chapter of ACBS has an annual early morning cruise on the 4th of July. The cruise was led by the Quinn Family in a 1940 beautifully restored Chris-Craft Triple named “Patriot”. 

Traveling from the south end of the lake up to Bridgewater Plaza the Quinns added 14 additional boats to their “regatta”. Judging from the reception along the route this event will undoubtedly be scheduled again next year.

After reaching Bridgewater the group gathered for a photoshoot.
