Gathering at Vintage Boat Restoration

I am excited to announce that Jim Murdock has graciously offered to sponsor another club social at his facility in Bristol, CT on Saturday March 1st starting at 9:00 a.m. and ending around 3:00 p.m.

The boat social is intended to be an informal get-together to talk boats, engines and see Jim’s shop.  Currently there are 40 boats in the shop, ranging from a 1914 Goodhue and Hawkins to a 1957 BMW.  Jim and members of his staff will be available to answer your questions, give suggestions and generally allow us to have a great time in their shop.  You may be lucky enough to walk away with ideas and thoughts that might make your restoration or maintenance that much easier or better.

Seeing an old engine running on the bench and having the performance mapped through a lap top has got to be pretty amazing.

The chapter will provide “coffee” as well as pizza for lunch.  Jim’s wife Gail will also whip up some Blue Moon Stew.  Lunch will be served around 1:30 p.m. So that Bette knows how much food to order, please RSVP to her at (203) 264-5823 or email: no later than Friday February 21st.

Jim hopes to have the new sign out front done to make finding the shop a little bit easier this year.

Address of Jim Murdock’s Facility:

201 Terryville Road

I look forward to seeing everyone on Saturday March 1st starting at 9:00 a.m. at Vintage Boat Restoration in Bristol!
