Antique and Classic Boat Show Slated

Winner 2007 Best Garwood Clayton Boat Show

Long Lake is gearing up to host the first Antique and Classic Boat Show on Saturday, July 10th, 2010 at the Long Lake Waterfront from 10am – 5pm. With so many antique and classic wooden boats hiding along the shorelines of Long Lake a group of passionate Wooden Boat Afficionado’s have decided  to showcase these stylish, beautiful, restored treasures of yesteryear.

Organizer’s have scoped out a diverse group of boats including:  an original 1945 Garwood, having only graced the waters of Long Lake, a 1949 Chriscraft and a 1958 Speedster.  These are just a sampling of the few boats slated to be on display. Other boats on the lake that will hopefully be on scene include Chris Craft’s from 1924, 1962, 1947 as well as original handcrafted guideboats.  Always a crowd pleaser, look for a miniature Tug Boat moving about during the day.

The day’s festivities kick off at 10am and run until 5pm with a Boat Parade “at speed” leaving the town beach at 4pm. A cocktail reception and cash bar will be held at the Adirondack Hotel at 5pm and a trophy will be awarded to “Spectator’s Choice” by fans visiting and touring the boats.

  1. My wife Providence and I really enjoyed the wood boat show. The beauty of hand crafted boats on the water is thrilling and unique. We want to continue our discussions with the boat sheriff about two Chris Crafts he told us about–the boats are in North Carolina–but we misplaced his address.

    Please contact us with your address. We may have offers on the two boats you mentioned to us. Thanks, Gary McLouth
