The SML Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society held their Annual Fall Boat Show at Mariners Landing on Smith Mountain Lake.  Under moderate temperatures a variety of Chris-Craft and Century Antique Boats were displayed from states as far away as Ohio.  A total of 48 boats and their owners provided a lot of “looking” for those that attended the 29th Annual SML Antique Boat Show.  For further information regarding the Smith Mountain Lake Chapter contact Alan Frederick 540-352-8653 or via email to
