The Hudson River Chapter of the Antique & Classic Boat Society

DEDICATED TO PRESERVING CLASSIC BOAT DESIGN AND STRUCTURE AND THE HERITAGE OF BOATING ON THE HUDSON RIVER.

As individual members, our interest is rooted in a personal story or experience in our lives. 
As a group with a unique perspective on a common interest, our camaraderie sparks new energy in the continuing effort not just to own but to preserve the historic design, integrity, and structure of classic boats.   
Sometimes a single photo, story, or comment brings inspiration or drives the solution to various challenges in the continuing effort to maintain the historic continuity in antique and classic boat ownership and maintenance.   
This website is our link in the chain of preservation and enjoyment.
