2012 Toledo Classic Wooden Boat Show

The wife and I spent the weekend in Toledo, OH at the annual Toledo Antique and Classic Boat Show. This years show was held at a new venue - the Toledo Yacht Club. The TYC has fixed piers to moor the boats, with a long drop to the water; so I didn't get to demonstrate my models in the water. Show set up was Friday afternoon, with a "Welcome to the Show" cookout on the S.S. COL. JAMES M.SCHOONMAKER, formerly the S.S. WILLIS BOYER. Registration fees also covered lunch on Saturday and Sunday.

There were some new and interesting boats displayed this year: a Higgins cruiser; Hackercraft 30' runabout; a Lyman speed skiff; and a cottage racer.

Some more pictures of boats on the shore.

I saw few members of the Maumee Valley Model Boat Club at the show. Guys - bring your boat models and display them at the show. I got about 10 questions each day asking about a local model boat club. I also got about 20 questions each day asking if my models were for sale, or if I would do commission work.

Nice stuff Bob. What RCG needs is the ability to play audio clips. Nothing like the sound of one of those old wood brutes fired up and getting on plane.

Thanks for the photos. If you were going to make a model of one which one would it be?
I like the unrestored Dart and the Wooden Nickle my self.
Regards,
Gerald.

Probably the unrestored Dart, which has an interesting history. It was apparently used for racing at one time; then became a rumrunner, and was seized by the USCG and used against rumrunners. The Lyman speed skiff is also an interesting boat.
