Fans of the classic wooden boat parade at Harbourfest were spared both the thunderstorms and the humid weather, as Mother Nature held off for a few hours.
It was long enough for Gord Henke and his colleagues to show off their handiwork.
"Nothing could be better than that," he said, after a tour of Safety Bay.
"I just love the look. Nothing better than a nice wooden boat driving down the lake," he added. "The classic wooden boat from the 1930s, '40s and '50s has a very unique look to it, whenever it's going down the lake."
