My comments about The Michigan Chapter’s 29th Annual International Boat Show and Rendezvous
The Michigan Chapter was pleased to welcome the addition of Classic Glass for our marquee boat for our 29th boat show in 2014. The inclusion of these truly unique and rare boats was a show stopper for everyone attending. The boat owners’ attention to the detail on the small boats was spectacular. The chrome on those19 50’s fins glistened in the sun, as did the vibrant colors. Our new friends from the “Fiberclassics” club brought us fine examples of craftsmanship from the early years of fiberglass production. Some of the boats attending the show were from Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, as well as Michigan.
The Michigan Chapter has been celebrating classic and antique boats for almost forty years, by using and enjoying their boats in our clear blue waters of the St. Clair River and delta region. With the addition of the “Classic Glass” boats it has brought our annual event to a new level. We even had the first ever fiberglass Best of Show Winner, Bill and Jan Stephenson’s beautiful Fino (pictured above). We strive to be an all-inclusive show and this year’s show covered almost every type of wooden and fiberclassic craft. I would like to extend a BIG thank you to all boaters who participated in our 29th Annual boat show, and a “Job Well Done” to the Show Committee.
