The Allegheny Chapter Members of the Antique and Classic Boat Society are good at working together, sharing know-how and learning, tools and projects.

Most of the members of the Allegheny Chapter live in the western part of Pennsylvania. Though they are one of our smaller chapters, they have a full calendar of events, including four workshops, two in the spring and two in the fall. The workshops are typically in a member’s garage or shop.  Of course, coffee and donuts entice participants to come, but a more important reason is the chance to work together as a team to perform tasks of maintenance, preservation, and restoration of members’ boats.

The Allegheny Chapter also has a boat show, the Conneaut Lake Classic in June.  As with most ACBS shows, there is a variety of boats from canoes to cruisers.

Two more workshops will be held in the fall after the chapter goes on a Fall River Cruise in September.

54 International Chapters of ACBS

The Antique and Classic Boat Society has 54 Chapters throughout the United States, Canada, and France. ACBS members who affiliate with a home chapter find a group of friends with whom to share boating experiences, boat stories, and the skills needed to maintain and/or preserve and restore their vintage boats.  Inevitably, the genuine relationships formed at the chapter level are always mentioned when an ACBS member is asked why they value their ACBS membership.

When you click on the CHAPTERS tab in the menu above, a world map will appear showing the location of the ACBS Chapters.  Which one is closest to you?  Or maybe there is a chapter near the lake where you vacation that has an event scheduled which you could attend.

Please share information about your chapter.  Anyone can do that.  You may email up to six pictures and text to
