Symposium Synopsis!

There are opportunities everywhere to learn something new.  Many Chapters have Shop Tours in the spring and workshops in the off-season. And ACBS members are notorious for helping each other with what they need to know – all the way from doing research to hands-on gettin’ the job done activities.

A very valuable benefit of membership in the Antique and Classic Boat Society is having access to the Video “How-to” library.  There are over 100 videos that have been taped of experts performing their craft on engines, wood, fiberglass, even trailers.  You can see a sampling of these videos on this website.

How do you view those videos?       You must be a current member of ACBS!  If not, go to the JOIN tab.

The Antique and Classic Boat Society also presents on site Symposiums at least three times each year.

On May 19, 20, 21, in less than two weeks, they co-sponsor the Spring Symposium in Clayton, NY at the Antique Boat Museum.

This event is SOLD OUT for this year.  The information here might be an incenttive to plan on it for next year.
For your immediate information, the weekend program will be centered around bottom replacement.  Our plan is to offer lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on involving bottom replacement. 

At the Annual ACBS Meeting and International Boat Show, a full schedule of Symposiums will be presented on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 8, 9.  Free!

Here is the preliminary schedule for topics and speakers at the 2017 Annual Boat Show Symposium
