I did take a picture but for some odd reason I'm having trouble pulling it from my gallery.

Bet the owner of that Black on White bowrider cringed a bit as the wing swept over his Bimini.

My dad owned a small plane based out of Beverly,MA. He and his pilot friends were always flying off on Saturday mornings to some airport in Maine, NH, Vermont, NY, Western,MA, RI, etc that had a good breakfast restaurant. This takes that idea to a whole new level.

It was fairly quiet in the Bay Saturday night. I'm sure he couldn't land that this during the busy boating season when boats are all over the bay.

How many remember when there was a scenic seaplane service that flew out of that location? and they sold some sort of igloo type buildings there as well. Before BayPoint came in with the bank.

Amoco station on the corner and a dock behind with the seaplane rides.


The "igloo" was supposed to be some sort sales model for a building of the future where it was a wire frame sprayed with foam. Late 60s, maybe early mid 70s. Don't think the idea took off.

That was before my time coming to the lakes. I didn't discover the Lakes region until the early to mid 70's and I don't remember seeing that.
