Live-ish From The McHenry, IL Antique & Classic Boat Show

Thanks to Jim Staib of Fine Wood Boats and his trusty camera we can enjoy the The Blackhawk ACBS boat show. What makes this show special, is that it almost did not happen. The original location burned down and show had to be moved to Fox Lake… Ahhhh Fox Lake… The understudy finally got it’s big break. Just sitting there, holding water for centuries…. waiting for it’s big chance….

Best Utility went to Jim Staib for my 1951 U-22
Runner up in the Runabout class was this rare Cavalier runabout owned by Marge Wagner of McHenry
Century’s were also very active!A float plane even came in for a look
