Trent Severn Antique & Classic Boat Association
Welcome to Our Home on the Internet
Once again the Toronto Sportsman's show is around the bend and the TSACBA has a display at the show. We are looking for volunteers to work the booth Wednesday March 13 through Sunday March 17, 2019. The hours are Wednesday to Saturday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. with shifts for volunteers from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. ad 2:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Hours on Sunday are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. We are mainly looking to fill the week day shifts and Saturday. If you can work a half or full day email . If you are interested in displaying a motor or a boat contact me as soon as possible.Currently TSACBA does not have a Secretary on our Board and we are seeking a member to fill that important role, if only to take our meeting notes. In January, we used a conference call in feature for our regular meeting and found that it worked quite well. Even though we will usually hold face to face meetings each month, there will always be the option for people to call in if they cannot attend and this would include the role of the Secretary. So, if anyone is interested and willing to join our board please let know as soon as possible. Be sure to check out our tentative list of events for the 2019 boating season and get ready to participate! We will update the events page regularly as plans are confirmed and more inforamtion on each event is available.
Our team of members working on the Half and Half Restoration Project have been busy for the past several months working on this boat to get it ready for display at the Toronto International Boat Show that runs from January 18 - 27, 2019. View the latest photos from work in 2018 and a 2019 update.

Please do not direct questions pertaining to the value of your boat to this Association. We are not in the position to quote accurate appraisals due to the many variables such as market fluctuations, difficulty in assessing the condition of a boat through email descriptions and pictures, etc. However, with the diversity of knowledge of various Association members, we will be happy to answer any general questions if at all possible.
