Greetings From Big Bear Lake, California!
Fellow Woody Boaters Dave Anderson and Maggi are up in Big Bear Lake, California this weekend attending the Big Bear Antique & Classic Boat Show in conjunction with the Southern California Chapter ACBS. Maggi sent us a few great images from the show to enjoy while slurping your Sunday morning coffee. Maggi said…
Hello from Big Bear Lake, CA!
Beautiful sunny weather, great to see our boat club friends again, and looking forward to spending Saturday at the show in front of B’s Backyard BBQ.
Maggi said “We took a flat water spin this morning, along with a few others.”

Heres a cool vintage post card we found from Big Bear in the 1940`s.
Thanks to Maggi & ASAP Dave for sending us the cool images from Big Bear, California. We appreciate you taking the time to share your boat show images with us and the Woody Boater Community.
Great shots of great boats……..wonderful andrenalin rush with my morning mojo enjoying your enjoyment sitting here in Michigan in the Lake……thanks folks….this is a great forum.
Thanks to Maggi & Davo for taking the time to send this report/pics to Woodyboater. Your buddy Scooter
Thanks for the report and great photos. I saw a preview of the show last week so I’m glad you provided a Livish WoodyBoater Report.
What a neat collection of boats. Can anyone tell me what the Century with the blue hull is? I can’t quite make it out on the iPhone. Either a big Resorter or a Coronado I reckon.
Thanks for the shots Maggi and Dave.
55 Arabians had blue hulls. Can’t see the topsides to be sure.
It is a ’59 Arabian. The owner painted it that way.
Thanks Brian. It looks sweet with the painted hull.
You know it’s a neat thing when you really get into these boats ones taste changes or matures. (Not sure which is correct.) there was a time when I’d only look at varnish and now I’m loving the boats with painted hulls. My friend out here on Wellington just took delivery of a sweet Chris craft runabout from Antique Boat America. White xmd red. She looks fantastic.
Now i kust want to add that blue grey Arabian that ABC have to my pod and I think ii’ll be happy.
Do you know the dates of the 2012 Big Bear show, and who do you contact about showing a boat.
You can contact Dave Anderson at the Southern California ACBS Chapter. Here’s Dave’s e-mail.
I would like to know if I may use a few photos on our website, it will simple promote the Wooden Boat show up here in Big Bear Lake.
Hi Kevin – I sent you an e-mail re the Arrowhead photos.
