The Lyman Boat Owners Association recently hosted the 12th Annual All Classics Festival on August 20th at the Huron Boat Basin in Huron, Ohio – The event was dubbed “A Celebration of Classic Boats & Cars”
Our friends Robert & Linda Miracle from Miracle Photography attended the event and once again captured some awesome images both from the Huron Boat Basin docks and from out on Lake Erie… And fortunately for us, they offered to share their images from Ohio with Woody Boater. Over 80 classic boats attended the All Classics Festival, which included a wide variety of Lyman Boats, as they were produced on the Lake Erie Waterfront.
Remember that you can click on any of these images to slightly enlarge them.
A Municipal Harbor, the Huron Boat Basin is located on the Huron River 15 miles East of Sandusky Bay. The entrance to the Huron River is marked by a Lighthouse on the West side of the river. The strip of land leading out to the Light is a nice spot for a relaxing day of fishing.
The city of Huron is known as the “Heart of Vacationland” in Ohio. It offers the comfort of a small town with the conveniences of a big city. The Huron Riverfest is a popular summertime event in early July.
Thanks as always to Robert & Linda Miracle for sharing their images with us. If you are interested in seeing their entire gallery or purchasing some digital images from the All Classics Festival in Ohio, you can click here to go directly to the Miracle Photography SmugMug site.

Here at Woody Boater we have developed a true appreciation for the style, beauty and versatility of the Lyman marque. For us, it seems that the more we learn about classic Lyman boats, the more we love and appreciate just how cool these boats are. My personal favorite (as long as I didn’t have to tow it too far) is 1965 28′ Lyman Sportsman powered by Twin 220 HP Grey Marine V-8′s, preferably with yellow hull sides and interior… Wow, what a cool boat.
