This website is intended to promote the excitement and appreciation our Association feels for antique watercraft. We hope that it will encourage the ongoing preservation of these fine historical vessels.
Have young children that you want to bond with? Restore a wood boat and pass on a talent and piece of history.
As we all get older, and we look at our birth certificates, one can make the connection that we won’t be able to rebuild ALL of our collection.
If you have the urge and want to donate a boat that needs some work, donating it to a young family can get them interested in Wooden Boats as a Family event. This is a wonderful way to introduce families who have never had a chance to work with a wood boat to own one. This is also a wonderful way to perpetuate our club by introducing young families to wood boat ownership.
By giving a hand up, this will help ensure the longevity of our clubs. Read the story and see photos of a recently gifted boat to the Tekauc Family.
To view photos and information on our various events visit our photo gallery. There you will also find archived photos and information on the Association's attendance at various boat shows and events.
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.
