ACBS (Toronto) International Boat Show: Gravenhurst -July 9th, 2016

July 12, 2016 in Uncategorized

Despite the threatening weather, this year’s show featured full docks glistening with wooden beauties, impressive displays on vendor’s row, the field of dreams with vintage boats and autos, an outboard motor club display, activities for children and the boats-in-motion features…which included free rides for attendees. Whew!
It was wonderful to see so many Greavette boats on display; Greavettes were this year’s featured water-craft.
It seems that a good time was had by all.(The rain held off until 3:30 pm) Kudos to the ACBS exective members and many volunteers who pull off this annual extravaganza. It’s a huge organizational effort. Well done!

The narrower beam of the launch above likely reflects the standard of the 1920s.
