Parade of boats a fitting tribute for Peter Hornbeck

A parade of boat-topped cars traveled from Blue Mountain Lake to Indian Lake and North Creek Wednesday, Dec. 30, before reaching Newcomb Overlook Park in an outpouring of admiration for boatbuilder Pete Hornbeck, who died Saturday.

His family: wife Ann Hornbeck, daughter Leigh and son-in-law Josh Trombley were there to greet the crowd.

Thank you to Carl Heilman II, who provided some of the photos in this gallery.
