Gravenhurst, ONTARIO - The 33rd Annual Antique and Classic Boat Show will be returning to the Muskoka Wharf in Gravenhurst on Saturday, July 6, 2013 to celebrate The Greatest Race Boat Show in Canadian History. Never before has there been such a complete display of race boats spanning 100 years of racing. Many of the more than 150 boats have won Championship races all over North America and many others have been racing informally on the Muskoka Lakes since the early 1900s. The show will feature everything from beautiful antique wooden racers to Sea Fleas to famous unlimited hydroplanes, including
MISS SUPERTEST III and MISS CANADIANA. Come hear the noise and feel the excitement of one of the most dangerous sports! The poster boat of the show is MISS CANADA IV, newly restored, and a very storied boat driven by the legendary Harold Wilson. Don't miss this amazing show!!

Boats in Motion, a favourite element of the show, will continue, as well as the Field of Dreams and Flea Market for those interested in a restoration project or purchasing one-of-a-kind items. The Antique Boat Museum from Clayton, Thousand Islands, New York will be returning to display several wooden racers.

Over 70 vendor booths, offering a wide variety of new products and services, will be present at the show. Ship's Stores will provide a wide range of ACBS merchandise, as well as publications, posters and many other items. A new program of Sea Flea construction for young boaters will be introduced. Also offered will be an information seminar at the Muskoka Boat and Heritage Centre.

Show hours are 9:00 a.m.- 5:00 p.m.. For further information contact Rita Adams at ritaadamsfw@gmail.com or visit our website at acbs.ca
