The boats were on the lake as part of the South Shore Car & Boat Show at Miller's Landing in Bass Lake.
Organizers say this is the second year hot rods were invited to take part in the event, but this year, they included hot rod boats as well. So far it's turned out to be a big hit.
"You have a down pedal on your left foot, keeps the nose in, got your throttle on the right. When that thing starts trucking and you come off that down pedal and they're no other feeling like it," Chris Blevens of Bass Lake said.
Proceeds from the event will go to a children's museum in Oakhurst. Organizers say the event doubled in size from last year and they're hoping it doubles again next year.
