Three boats that were the trendsetters in their eras speed past Spindle Point, Lake Winnipesaukee, on their way into Meredith. In the foreground, is a 1919 William Hand designed gentleman1s racer built in Alton Bay, New Hampshire. “Winwood” is the only example of this particular 20′ model know to exist. The beautiful streamlined design of the barrelback, or barrel stern, runabout represents the late 19301s. Here in the background is a 1939 19 foot Chris Craft that featured twin Bugatti-style windshields. Finally, the unmistakable 1955 Chris Craft Cobra with its gold fiberglass dorsal fin. Only 102 of these sportscar-inspired craft were ever produced. 19 and 21 foot versions offered speeds of up to 55 mph. The stone observatory tower, a landmark at the end of Meredith Neck, was built in 1892.
