  • Nelson Marine Mart, Johnson Motors and Century Boats sponsored this film of the Jacksonville Boating Club's annual cruise from Eureka to Leesburg. One hundred sixteen cold-molded plywood boats go through locks at Moss Bluff and stop to picnic. The commodore of the club gets the key to Leesburg from the mayor at the end of the cruise. The film is made in home movie style with title cards and a painted main title on wood. Photography and editing by R.G. Teese.
