As summer draws closer, the 2011 antique & classic boat show season is just around the corner and we can hardly wait. Woody Boater is looking forward to covering many different boat shows during the 2011 season, from the east coast, to the west coast and even a few stops throughout the mid-west this year as well. “Snazzy” (shown above) is an award winning 1948 20′ Chris-Craft Custom from California.
For the first time tonight I heard someone comment that by July we could see gas prices spike up as high as $6.00 a gallon, lets all cross our fingers the speculators are wrong. So… We thought we would ask the question – “For those of you who are planning to attend an antique & classic boat show this year, either as a spectator or with your boat, how will the rising gas prices effect your decision to attend one of the many boat shows around the country?”
Here are a few images from boat shows around the country to enjoy while you are thinking about what to comment below.
