The Algonac Boat Show has been cancelled

June 26-28, 2020: Algonac Boat Show

The ACBS Michigan Chapter has been monitiring developments due to the COVID-19 virus. Due to the shut down of all social gatherings by the State of Michigan and Federal Government and to prevent the spread of the Covid-19, we have put the health of the public, members and volunteers above all other concerns.

This was a difficult decision -but due to this Pandemic and everyone concerns, we recongnize that this is the appropriate decision. Please stay safe- practice social distancing, stay healthly and wash your hands.  We can pull through this together.

NEXT YEAR SHOW WILL BE BIGGER AND BETTER AND WE WILL HAVE A REASON TO CELEBRATE!- STAY SAFE!

Docking space is limited and will be provided on a first come - first served basis, so early registration is encouraged. Once all docking space is assigned, late registered boats will be offered land display if available and applicable for the size of the boat.



OVERNIGHT DOCKING

For cruisers needing hookup and overnight accommodations, arrangements must be made with the marina harbormaster. There is a fee. If you plan on docking Friday, the docking committee will try to put you in the slip you will have Saturday. If for some reason that is not possible you may have to move Saturday morning for the show.

If you wish to drop your trailer and have use of your vehicle for the weekend you may leave your trailer on the grassy field directly across the highway from the marina at no charge.
