The 101st Opening Day on the Bay!
This is a tradition for our fleet, as our classics lead the parade along the San Francisco waterfront. Later our participants and guests cruise to a common spot for a pot-luck dinner.

Lake Union Drydock
(Northern California Fleet)
Built in 1928 at the Lake Union Dry Docks, Seattle. Pat Pending has been owned by the Owen family since 1940. Originally 43 LOA she was lengthened to 50' in 1930. Shown here on the Mokelumne River.
Pat Pending was built in 1929 by Lake Union Drydock Company as one of their production boat line known as "Lake Union Dreamboats." At 44'-3", this bridgedeck version was in contrast to the "Dreamboat" style, known for their large rectangular aft deckhouses, which were very popular at the time. So this version was advertised as part of the Dreamboat line as well.
