Awe inspiring!  This Hacker Craft boating at sunset on Lake Champlain was photographed by John Dupee.  Can you identify the boat and owner?
Thanks, John, for sharing this.  Every time an antique or classic boat is in view, the cameras seem to come out to capture the glory of vintage artwork entwined with nature.


1956 42′ MATTHEWS Martinique named Starlight Express owned by Randy Mueller of Gig Harbor, WA.  The Martinique was my childhood ‘dream boat’ from 1956, and I finally realized this dream with her restoration/relaunching in 2006. Picture was taken by myself during a MATTHEWS Boat Owners Association Rendezvous at Roche Harbor in the San Juan Islands.
