ACBS International Boat Show, Gull Lake Minnesota.
Enjoy the professional quality drone video of the boats at the show held at John Allen’s wonderful dining facility on Gull Lake in Minnesota. Wooden boats of all sizes and styles were well represented at this event; the docks were entirely filled! The various Canadian built boats there were represented by such stunning vessels as Tolka. The show also featured Locpat II, Evangeline, and a cross section of Chris Craft, Century, Hacker and other wooden boat manufacturers..even a couple of Falls Flyers

Come along for a ride in a Disappearing Propeller Boat.
Who would have believed that after 100 years, “Dippies” are still going strong! The Antique and Classic Boat Society is recognizing the Dispro this year at the annual International Gravenhurst, Ontario show, July 11, 2015. Celebrating Dippies is only one of the many reasons it is worth coming to Muskoka for this event, one of the largest in North America.
Anyway, climb aboard with us as we venture out on Lake Muskoka in a beautifully restored Greavette Dispro.
