From the ACBS:
The Antique and Classic Boat Society Toronto (ACBS-Toronto) is excited to bring their in-water show back to The Wharf in Gravenhurst on July 9.
Club President Mike Gridley stated, “based on the success of our previous virtual events, the Virtual Winter Workshop and Virtual Spring Tour, we were able stay connected to our membership.” So far the response we have had to-date from our membership, vendors and sponsors who are all excited to be back and in-person for our in-water show this year has been amazing.
Vice President Jeff Titshall and producer of the virtual Winter Workshop and Spring Tour stated “that our partners have been very responsive to our recent virtual initiatives but are looking forward to connecting with our large audience that the in-water show delivers.
This year the ACBS will be holding their 41st Vintage Boat Show promoting the theme of “Magic on the Water”.
The Gravenhurst venue is a true jewel to hold an in-water boat show and this year we are expecting a full house of vintage boats as well as attendance. This show clearly delivers some of the finest antique/vintage wooden and vintage fibreglass beauties in the country and beyond.
One exciting new initiative planned for this year is a J-Craft water-ski show with vintage boats and skiers. Returning to the show is the Nautical Flea Market where boat owners can search for that elusive part for their vintage boat. Looking to buy a boat, then check out the Boats4sale area. Our famous vendor alley has something for every nautical shopper. Marvel at the beautifully restored Antique Outboard Motor Club display. Introduce your children to the vintage boat hobby in the Kids & Classics Tent and much, much more.
The show is free and a great event for the whole family.
The ACBS will be following all government guidelines and protocols to ensure a safe environment for all in attendance.
