March 1st at 7pm is our” Town Hall “type Adirondack Chapter Board of Directors meeting. We instituted Zoom meetings last fall with the Board, and it worked great. This is your chapter and we need your input! All members are encouraged to join us for this brief, but informative 20-40-minute digital meeting via Zoom. Be sure to “Check In” so you will learn all about our chapter happenings. We always welcome new ideas!
We will email you specific instructions to join using your computer, tablet or your cell phone with the Zoom app.
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.
