Antique and Classic Boat Show

Antique and Classic Boat ShowThe few drops of rain were not enough to wash off the dust but they did not hide the banner strung across the entrance to the town of McCall.  An Antique and Classic Boat Show was set to open for public viewing for the weekend.  Hopefully the rain was temporary and would not linger.

McCall, Idaho sits on the shores of Payette Lakes and is home to year around recreation opportunities.  In the winter, skiing, snowmobiling, and ice fishing are popular.  In the summer, skiing (water), wheeling, and fishing are popular.  This August weekend featured an Antique and Classic Boat Show hosted by the local chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society (www.acbs.org).

The name Chris-Craft dominated the makers of boats on display.  All were meticulously restored to their former glory years when moved from factory to show room to the water.  From the 28 foot speed boat powered by twin Mercury Marine V-8 engines to the sleek 14 canoe powered by sail, the boats were high polished wood.

It is evident the owners loved and cherished their classic boats and seek to protect the heritage of boating by promoting the preservation and restoration of historic antique and classic boats.
