The Clayton Countdown! – 20 Days – 3 Weeks Til The 1000 Islands!


This time in a couple ish weeks we will be sifting through cool stuff at the best flea market in the US if not the world for classic boat stuff. Okay, it’s not like there is alot of stuff to compare it too. But there have been years where true treasures can be found. The entire reagon is very fertile for this sort of stuff.

And of course there is the museum. We suggest that you show up early so you can explore the storage shed. Its closed on the weekend. Phil Andrews and I will be exploring for sure and trying to get on boat rides around the area.

This year, THE Museum is featuring 1940’s boats. So you will see Pre war, and Post war boats. Which is cool.

Is there a boat down there?

The Auction on Saturday is wonderful. Trick! Bring a empty trailer – Deals are better on boats without trailers.

Flea market fun

Auction stuff

Rare boats

Our History is here

So is the ACBS HQ – See that flag pole? So do I!

Will they padlock the pole?

We hope to see you all there. Get a Beef on a wick, and bask in the old varnish!

      I judged there one year…John Dubicus was our Chief Judge…We all got free rooms at Bertram’s. The next year they got a whole new crew…I often wondered if it was something we said, or the way we dressed.

    Name change, but corporate philosophy is still the same:
    “There’s an ass for every seat”
    “It’ll fit-we guarantee it”
    “We’re not happy ’til you’re not happy”

    It’s all fun!
