PropTalk's -A Classic River Rat Homecoming 
(by Ann and Dave Hannam)
A quick read for all my Ottawa River Rat friends, growing up in Canada and a road trip back North with the Garwood Speedster and a spin near Black Rapids Lockstation! Click here to read.

St. Michael's Antique and Classic Boat Festival:
Hannam is heading over to the Boat Festival again this year with the completed Gar Wood Speedster 16' in tow. It's been a few years of hard work, dedication and just LOVE - but this little fireball is now completed and ready to show! Just look how far this unique hand built boat from Hannam has come! Sure to be a crowd stopper-again this year.

We had another great time, showing off at the Annual St. Michaels Antique & Classic Boat Festival. The crowd was amazing, and couldn't believe how far along the Gar Wood 16' Speedster Replica had come since last summer. Everyone is looking forward to seeing it complete and varnished, including it's 210 hp V6 GM velvet drive engine.
At last years event, we won an award from the ACBS Chesapeake Bay Chapter for the "Best Land Display" for our newly constructed Gar Wood. We were honored to have participated in such a great event, which included close to 100 antique and classic boats on display.

Annapolis Lifestyles Magazine:

The Annapolis magazine recently highlighted Dave under their feature People of Interest section, in an article called "Taking Life One Boat at a Time".Hannam talks about the vanishing woodwright shops and describes his unique company philosophy, "My clientele are passionate about their boats. They want a product they can be proud of"."It's not just a matter of the best deal - it's about personality, communication and service, building relationships and conversation" said Hannam.
