32nd Annual Antique & Classic Boat Show Blessed by Great Weather

The Antique & Classic Boat Society [ACBS Toronto] held their 32nd Annual Antique & Classic Boat Show this past Saturday, July 7 at the Muskoka Wharf in Gravenhurst, Ontario.

The show was a packed event with steady crowds throughout the day looking at the amazing range of restored antique and classic boats on the docks in the water, as well as many more on land displays where you could get right up close.

Held on the 2nd Saturday of July every year, in Gravenhurst, Ontario, the show has few equals anywhere in the world. This year the highlight of the show, and the show’s poster both was Tolka, a magnificent varnished launch, but not one built in the Muskoka Lakes area; it was built at the Alexander Graham Bell Laboratories in Baddeck, Nova Scotia.

Visitors to the show received a copy of the ACBS Toronto publication Classic Boat magazine with a major feature article on this very special boat.
