The Southern New England Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society

Presents the 29th Annual Mahogany Memories Antique & Classic Boat Show

July 12-14, 2013

The show takes place at the Connecticut River Museum on the scenic and historic waters of the southern Connecticut River in the town of Essex which has been voted one of the 10 best towns in the country.  The boat show has always been a showcase for antique and classic runabouts and this year will be no different.

Activities include a Friday night cookout, Saturday evening catered dinner with award ceremony, boating on the Connecticut River and an overall great time. Everyone is welcome to attend with or without a boat and all antique, classic and modern classic runabouts are welcome and encouraged to attend. Boat owners can choose to have their vessel judged to ACBS standards. Come and enjoy the beautiful scenery, stunning boats and great friendships!

We are also pleased to announce that “Classic Boating Magazine” will be doing a “Photo Shoot” at our 29th Annual Antique and Classic Boat Show at the CT River Museum in Essex on Saturday July 13, 2013. We have been advised that this will be a “sunrise shoot” and there will be no problem getting boats back to dock for the start of the show during public viewing hours. So…. be sure to spiff up the varnish, polish the chrome and get ready for a fun Saturday morning!

If you have children or grandchildren in your family, then the Southern New England Chapter would like to invite them to become a “Youth Judge” and learn about boat judging at our July 13, 2013 show.  We will gather those interested at 10:00 a.m. Saturday morning and pass out T-shirts and all of the required information to judge the boats. Lynn Dombroskas will be in charge of the children. We are able to accommodate 10 children.   The “Youth Judging” awards will be presented at the award ceremony Saturday night. This will be a fun experience for the kids – so… come one and all and become a “Youth Judge”!
