Along with the lure of the 1000 Islands and the magic of the river, the proximity of this year’s ACBS 2019 Int’l Boat Show in Alexandria Bay NY presented the opportunity to gather more knowledge of what the ACBS International Boat Show is all about for our 2021 Int’l Boat Show Committee. Some members of our chapter jumped at the opportunity and rented a 6 bedroom house with fold out couches so that as many people as possible could participate in the event. The weather was superb for the entire week long event from September 16th through the 22nd. The living quarters allowed us all to gather and share our experiences amid home cooked meals and cocktails, both upstairs and down. The house was full, and memories were made of fun times for all. Below are a few pictures of the show and events, most from my own experience, and some from Holly Weber, noted in the caption. Topping things off, our chapter had two award winners! Holly and John’s 1950 17’ Chris Craft Runabout “Cheerleader”, won silver in Classic Utility Restored, and Sue and Dana’s 1949 13’ Lyman Leader, “Ninnyfish”, won a gold in Classic Outboard Restored, and also the Lyman Boat Owner’s Assn.’s Best of Show Lyman.
