A wide range of performance boats, including Bill Tomlinson’s My Way 50-foot Mystic Powerboats catamaran, Chris Bullen’s Clarion wooden boat, Stephane Boudrias’ Ferrari-themed 44-foot Marine Technology Inc. cat, Patrick Bedard’s Go Fast Outerlimits V-bottom and Brian and Janet Lundy’s new M35 Widebody from DCB Performance Boats, took part in the run, which featured the always-popular lunch stop at O’Brien’s Restaurant in Clayton, N.Y. An aside, Lundy’s M35 was featured in the latest issue of Speed On The Water magazine (read the story).
After enjoying the St. Lawrence River and the beautiful Thousand Islands region throughout the day Saturday, participants were treated to dinner at the host location—the Edgewood Resort in Alexandria Bay, N.Y.
