There were two kinds of wood at Russells Point Harbor on Indian Lake last weekend – the beautiful varnished wood used to build the classic boats, and the (less beautiful) natural wood that was used to build the docks. In order see and appreciate the beautiful varnished wood without being interrupted by the natural wood on the docks, Brian had to shoot many of the boats from their transoms. Nice work Brian! – TexxLive-ish from Indian Lake, Ohio

Texx – What a great turnout for the July 17,18,19th 2015 annual Wooden Keels and Vintage Wheels Show at Russells Point Harbor on Indian Lake in central Ohio!!
We had 38 antique and classic boats along with a wonderful display of vintage cars. The show is one of the activities of the Indian Lake Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society. The harbor venue, site of the former amusement park known from 1925-1970 as Ohio’s Million Dollar Playground, sparkled after its recent upgrades.
A fabulous weekend of classic boating and great friends gathered together to share a common interest. – Brian Fogarty
From the Indian Lake Chapter ACBS website / mission statement:
“The vision of the Indian Lake Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society is to provide an organization where people with a common interest in and love of historic, antique, and classic boats can come together with friends and colleagues in a spirit of fellowship and fun to share dreams, adventures, knowledge, history and experiences.”
“Our chapter promotes this vision to enthusiasts throughout central and northwestern Ohio. We are a volunteer, non-profit organization based at Indian Lake.”
