One of the magical things about going out on a Woody Boat is that you are not just out on the water in a boat, you are enjoying a living history. You are a moving museum of art, engineering and a moment in time. It’s even more fun when you can tap into the entire moment in a wonderful area. This year the big Algonac show is returning to the marina where it all started. June 26-28, 2015 Click HERE for the Chapters website!
The original Chris Craft factory, Our Pal and long time Fellow Woody Boater Pete Beauregard’s place, which is about as rich in history as it comes.
This year they are also planning some special historic tours in an effort to change up the old boat show formula. So, think, ya get to go up to where it all began, go boating where it all started, eat at some of the places that are still there and take a tour of the town Christopher Columbus Smith and Gar wood grew up in..
We have been there several times, and to be blunt, if you have never been there, you will never understand the true history of your boat. It all comes into view. how and why certain boats were made. It’s as if you could go to Woody Boater heaven and go boating. The turquoise water is perfect. And best of all, you won’t be alone!
