Boats -Vintage Family Cruisers

Thought I'd share a small collection of boat pictures I took over the summer while up at the beach. Aren't they cute?
Cruiser style boats from the 20's to 40's, have always been a favorite of mine. What a dream it would be to own one. I love their lines. I love that they are made out of wood and not fiberglass!
How fun would it be to cruise around the Sound or the San Juan Islands in one of these classics?
And by all means, dressed in your best classic nautical fashions, of course!
It makes me happy to watch these beauties go by.
This original sales brochure of my Dad's, is from the 20's. It is fun to look through, and is a real neat piece of vintage ephemera.
I'll keep dreamin'...

You and I will both keep dreaming. I love vintage boats and have a friends who is restoring one. I can't wait for it to be finished. Yes, I have my outfit all picked out for my cruse!

we have an old wood cruiser, and it gets comments and makes friends everywhere she goes in the San Juan Islands! Keep dreaming, and make it happen!
