Boats and floats in Brooksville
Over 40 boats, ranging from schooners to lobster boats, floated past the Bucks Harbor Yacht Club during the Brooksville Boats and Floats parade on July 30. The porch and yard of the yacht club were filled with spectators who watched and cheered as the boats came by in varying forms of decoration, from happy birthday balloons to a hula dancer to an early Christmas holiday celebration. The Gumpie II, owned by Phil Friend earned third place, while Peter Webber’s boat Mr. Speedy came in second. Frank Peasley’s boat Hannah Marie took first place honors.
