The Adirondack Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society’s 46th Annual Lake George Rendezvous has been set for Saturday, August 24th, from 10 am to 4 pm, at the Lake George Village public docks on Beach Road.
On display will be antique and classic contemporary boats from the early 20th century through today.
Visitors can see rare, restored award-winners, including mahogany speedboat runabouts, early double-ended launches, classic Chris-Crafts, Hacker-Crafts, and GarWoods at home on the lake for decades, early outboards and even classic, restored mid-20th century fiberglass models.
Children are invited for a free ride around the waterfront in Adironduck, a 1950s Chris-Craft 10′ Racing Pram wooden kit boat replica, powered by a vintage Mercury engine. Construction of the kit was begun at the 2007 rendezvous by 12 youth and a handful of Antique and Classic Boat Society volunteers and has served as a youth introduction to boats and boat-building ever since.
Boating-related vendors and Lake George preservation groups will also be on hand. Featured this year will be the Triumph Sports Car Club and Model T Ford Club gatherings. Food and ice cream vendors, and the Adirondack Chapter’s own Ship’s Store, will offer boat-themed shirts, hats, posters.
Visitors are encouraged to vote for their favorite boat by picking up a ballot at either the Ship’s Store or the show registration table.
This boat show is sanctioned by the Antique and Classic Boat Society (ACBS) and organized by its Adirondack Chapter, one of the founding chapters of the ACBS.
