“Tolka” received a 2015 Gold Antique Launch Award at the 2015 ACBS Boat Show.
“Tolka”, owned by Lee and Penny Anderson, was entered as a 1929 36 foot Bell Labs Launch. She is powered by a Sterling Petrel 6 cylinder 135 hp engine.
Prewar boats that were built between 1919 and 1942 are officially in the “Antique” classification. A “Gold Award” is given only when a boat is judged to be a 92-96 point boat.
Here is a list of the 2015 Boat Show Winners. In the coming weeks, this website will continue to show pictures of the 2015 winning boats. The 2015 Annual ACBS Meeting and International Boat Show was held at Gull Lake, Minnesota. It was hosted by the Bob Speltz Land-o-Lakes Chapter of ACBS.
