Be sure to set the date aside for this “by invitation only” vintage in-water show- a display of magnificent vintage watercraft.
Held in Port Carling, Muskoka, Ontario on a bi-annual basis, the show, which runs from 9:00 am to 4:00pm, offers a wonderful selection of “creme-de-la-creme” antique and classic boats.
Although it is too late to enter a boat in this year’s event, anyone interested in future participation can email the Muskoka Lakes Association by contacting Lisa at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Muskoka Lakes Association Antique Boat Show: Port Carling, August 8, 2014
This year’s show featured perfect weather, a jazz band to set the mood, and oodles of delicious antique and classic wooden boats. Many thanks to the MLA for making the show possible, and to the many “woody” owners who stepped up to the plate by just being there. The show proved again that Muskoka craftsmanship is second to none.
What a contrast…Segwun, the stately photogenic steamer, and Miss Canada III, race boat extraordinaire!
This incredible, twin engined Ditchburn was one of the highlights of the show.
Rambler, a 70 foot Polson Iron Works vessel, has just returned from a two year “make-over” courtesy of Brackley Boats in Gravenhurst. She was too massive to be brought into Paul’s shop, so work was carried out in her island boat house. She literally sparkled at the dock in Port Carling.
…More to come…stay tuned!
