The annual Lake Tahoe Concours d'Elegance in Tahoe City, California is a three-day-long celebration of classic American watercraft, featuring custom and vintage antique wooden boats from the 1920s through the 1970s and beyond. There are 15 judging classes, including antique wooden lakers, launches, blonde deck runabouts, gentlemen's racers, outboards, canoes, three-cockpit runabouts, fiberglass boats and utility boats. This iconic racing boat was originally designed by George Crouch in 1924 and went on to win the 1924 and 1925 APBA Gold Cup.
It has been said that the 16 foot Gar Wood speedster is, pound for pound, the most valuable classic production speed boat in the world.


There are some 15 frames, 2 keels, twin hatch assembly, vertical cleats, gas tank fixing, drivers bench seat, breast hook, front and rear stems with knees etc. The Concours d'Elegance boat show, also known as "Wooden Boat Week," was founded in 1972 by a group of Tahoe Yacht Club members, and today the Concours is run by the Tahoe Yacht Club Foundation (TYCF).
The sweeping lines, lush mahogany woodwork and ornate brightwork of these Art Deco and Depression era "woodies" exude a level of craftsmanship that is seldom seen today. Matt has an ability to spin a great tale and although he can’t spell at 5 in the morning when he writes most of his blog entries, he sure can bring a smile to your face with his wit and humour.
