Last week Sebago Lake, Brandy Pond and Long Lake in the western Maine Lakes Region glistened with beautiful antique watercraft, including many woodies, as the Mountainview Woodies Classic Boat Club held its 16th Annual Antique and Classic Boat Show on the Causeway in Naples on Saturday, August 1.
Some of the rarest and most beautiful antique and classic boats still in existence were on display for all to enjoy.
Wooden boats have graced the Lakes Region for many years. They recall a more elegant era, where form and function combined in a graceful work of art that glides across the water. With sleek, smooth lines, detailed handiwork and the extraordinary glow of mahogany, these boats offer unique beauty from bow to stern.
Though wooden runabouts, the first personal powerboats, were replaced by fiberglass in the 1960s, and major wooden boat makers shut down production, they never lost their appeal. Instead, they became objects of great desire.
And now you can enjoy these classic beauties, plus those made of fiberglass and aluminum, brought to us by the Mountainveiw Woodies Classic Boat Club.
According to club president, Jeff Murdock, "On Wednesday, July 29th, we gave rides to campers at Camp Sunshine." Camp Sunshine at Point Sebago Resort on Sebago Lake offers a retreat to children dealing with major health problems.
"On Thursday we had our annual Sebago Lake excursion with lunch at Migis Lodge. Friday afternoon there was a boat parade from Brandy Pond into Long Lake. The boats queued up on Brandy Pond about 4:30 p.m. and then traveled under the bridge into Long Lake. We made two loops around in front of the Causeway and then we lined them all up and at the drop of a flag everyone took off at once." It's an amazing site to behold.
An added enhancement this year, Jeff says, was a car exhibition.
"This year we had some cars exhibited in addition to the boats. It's a fun show in that there is no judging, although we're talking about a peoples' choice this year. In the past we've had anywhere from 25-45 registered boats, with a half dozen or so last minute entries," he said.
Wooden boat collectors and folks who appreciate fine craftsmanship enjoyed the parade on Friday night and Saturday show.
