Welcome to Our Home on the Internet

The classic boating world has had a hard hit. TSACBA member Ronny Haylock passed away this week. He will be missed by so many. His boats and enthusiasm for Classic Boats will live forever. Ronny was at the recent Sportsman's Show exhibit in Toronto as pictured below and also regularly attended the ACBS Toronto Show in Gravenhurst, also pictured below. There is no funeral but a celebration of life for his friends in the close future.

SeminoleImportantHalf and Half, A Restoration Demonstration Project of the Trent Severn Antique and Classic Boat Association. In August of 2017 the club was offered a 1952 cedar Strip Lakefield boat, the Seminole model. Over the years the elements and snow load had taken their toll but we decided it would be perfect to use it for a restoration demonstration project.

Please do not direct questions pertaining to the value of your boat to this Association.
