ACBS Spring Boat Show set for June 22

The Smith Mountain Lake Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society will host its Spring Boat Show on Saturday, June 22.

The public is invited to see a collection of antique and classic motorboats at Smith Mountain Lake's Parrot Cove Marina from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

More than a dozen antique and classic boats from the 1920's to the 1960's will be on display at Parrot Cove Marina, near the Hales Ford Bridge on Route 122. Visitors will have an opportunity to speak with each boat owner and discuss the engineering masterpieces from an era gone by. The chapter's Ships Store will be open this year, and visitors will be able to purchase items that have previously only been available at the fall boat show. Major credit cards are accepted.

The members of the Smith Mountain Lake Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society are committed to restoring and preserving these boats from an earlier time. Approximately half of the 68 members of the local chapter live on or near Smith Mountain Lake.

This spring event will be a preview of the annual September Antique and Classic Boat Festival Weekend, which will take place at Mariners Landing Resort and Conference Center Sept. 14.
