2003 Lighted Boat Parade

Paupack Sailing Club's Championship Entry

“Liberty on Parade”

Aka The African Queen

Don Snyder - Captain

Lou Snyder - Lady Liberty

Gary Bixler - Weapons Officer

Ray Salapka - Chief Electrician

Bob Schmidt - Uncle SAM

Great job to all those that helped in transforming the African Queen into clearly the best decorated boat in this years Lighted Boat Parade.  The African Queen was decked out in her best patriotic colors starting with the hundreds of red, white and blue lights.  Lou Synder made a great Lady Liberty shining her torch brightly off the bow.  Gary Bixler was busy fending off attackers with numerous cannon shots. But hands down the show stopper was our commodore hoisted up to the spreaders dressed as Uncle Sam waiving his flag and tipping his hat to the crowd. 

If you didn’t stay for the show you missed a HALL OF FAMER.
