A blast from the past!

December 11, 2018 in Uncategorized

Although it’s only mid December, Ontario’s Muskoka region is buried in some forty centimetres of snow, and winter storms have pounded the Carolinas and even Texas. It’s enough to make woody enthusiasts beg for summer. Althnough we can’t produce warm weather, we hope that this video of an Antique and Classic Boat Society show in Gravenhurst, will provide cheer through these cold, short days. The “footage” in the video was shot by N.H., the former owner of Port Carling Boats. Enjoy.
