You know you're really into boats when you're zipping by an antique store you never really glance at and see a long, sleek hull with plumb stem and straight sheer, just like a 16/30, which would not be unexpected in these parts, with the boat builders in Hamilton at the turn of the last century along with the once-thriving beach community and Hamilton Canoe Club, whose once-regal clubhouse has long since vanished. So you almost whiplash yourself, stop as quickly as you safely can, and head back. On driving up you see $475 in marker on the hull, but since its leaning you cant see the top. Is this a daydream coming true? Ah well, an older homebuilt tandem racer, but still a heck of a thrill for the day - at least more than the spring yardwork that preceeded the sighting.
