Default 2007 Antique & Classic Boat Show-Gravenhurst

Gravenhurst, Ontario-July 7, 2007

On July 7, 2007 the Town of Gravenhurst, Ontario hosted the 27th Annual Antique & Classic Boat Show.

The show was organized by ACBS of Toronto, and featured a great selection of Antique and Classic Wood and early-era fiberglass boats.

For the year 2007, the ACBS of Toronto has declared this year, "The Year of the Outboard". So the show also featured a number of classic outboard powered boats as well as classic motor displays.

Our very own forum member Yolanda Cueto attended the show along with Carolyn Mancuso and took a plethora of amazing photographs of these incredibly beautiful boats and early era outboard motors.

I'll be adding a few photographs each day over the coming weeks, so we hope you'll drop by and enjoy them.

Here is a link to an article about the show that was in one of the local papers.

Chris,

We have over 200 photos all of classic boats.

And even though the Predictor isn't a classic or antique yet, we did manage to get a few shots of some classic fiberglass boats. There were some 50's style glass boats there, you probably know the type I'm sure. The early ones that featured the car like fins similar to what the guys at fiberglassics like.

those early fiberglass were very much an automotive designs - some were pretty neat. my dad's old boat had a curved glass windsheild before they were the style to have - 1968. although, maybe i'm a purist, i really like the motor launch style - ditchburns and minnets are my style. our wedding boat was a 34 ditchburn called "wingberry" dunford did a watercolour of it - if you look around you can find it in some of the stores in muskoka.
