Welcome to the website of the Michigan Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society. This site is dedicated to preserving the history of antique and classic boating in the Great Lakes region through the sharing of information about early power boating.
We schedule events throughout the year and around the state to promote the hobby we love. Please feel free to browse our site and visit our Photo Gallery which includes annual events such as inwater shows, swap meets and workshop tours, and don't miss the Project Corner where our members can submit photos of their DIY restorations.
We publish a complete calendar of events which will inform you of what is going on in your area and we hope you to see you at a show. Thank you for viewing our site - we hope you will take the opportunity to explore classic boating.
The Michigan Chapter is honored to be the Featured Chapter on ACBS.org this week! If you are visiting us for the first time please "click around" to see all the Michigan Chapter has been up to. Our CALENDAR is the place to see our plans for 2017 and in NEWS you can view all we have been doing. On the right side of your screen you can also download copies of our award winning "Channel Marker".
Thanks and Welcome!
For over 39 years, the Michigan Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society is proud to have partnered with numerous individuals and companies that are committed to the classic and vintage boating hobby. Our Membership of over 400 vintage boaters know these companies provide valuable products, services and knowledge to them as classic boat owners.
Sponsorship packages for the 2017 boating season are available now and offer advertising opportunities associated with our Algonac Boat Show as well as our award winning publication, the Channel Marker, which recently moved to full color. We offer sponsors many different options to best utilize their sponsorship and advertising dollars to maximize the return to their business.
This year our advertisers will enjoy an increased geographical reach as the International ACBS will be holding their Summer Board Meeting in conjunction with the Algonac Boat Show. We will also be getting increased attention since the 2018 ACBS Annual Meeting and International Boat Show will be hosted by the Michigan Chapter.
Your sponsorship not only helps us succeed in our mission of preserving, restoring and educating the public about classic and vintage boating but gives you recognition for your business and provides valuable business referrals.
