Tumblehome Boatshop Winter Workshop @ Tumblehome Boatshop
Mar 7 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

This is a joint event with our neighbors from the Lake Champlain ACBS chapter.

Reuben will be talking about each of the boats on the shop floor — the restoration work being performed on them, their history, plus the techniques being used. Boats to be discussed include the 1903 Leighton Launch, “Indian,” (Old Forge) which is being restored and repowered electric, and a 1927 Fay & Bowen, “Sequoia,” (Lake George, then Rangely Lakes in ME), under restoration.

The boatshop is kept on the cool side, and we’ll be standing a bit in the shop, so wear comfortable shoes. Hot coffee and fresh toasted muffins (from Main Street Ice Cream Parlor) will be served.


Also,  there’s a small chance our parking lot will be iced over and we’ll need to postpone, so folks should stay RSVP  so they can be reached if we need to reschedule.

Hacker Craft Spring Workshop @ Hacker Craft Boats
Apr 25 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

Join us at the Hacker Craft Boats production facility for a tour of the shop and discussion about the boats being built and restored. John Skinner will lead us and he is a wealth of knowledge.

The legacy is that of John L. Hacker (1877-1961), the preeminent naval architect of mahogany pleasure crafts of the last century, whose designs included some of the greatest mahogany boats ever built, with exotic names such as Pardon Me, Thunderbird, El Lagarto, Bootlegger, Peerless, Dolphin, Kitty Hawk, Belle Isle Bear Cats, My Sweetie, among others.

In the 1930’s, our celebrated boats were named “The Steinway of Runabouts,” and have exhilarated people around the world: Gold Cup racers, celebrities, royalty, captains of industry… and those who simply want the very best.
