Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show

on display at the show

The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show opens on October 27 and runs through October 31, 2011.The Boat Show exhibits new boats from boat and yacht companies as well as yacht designers and used or brokered yachts.

A variety of boats and ocean vessels will be on display including runabouts, sport fishing boats, high performance racers, medium sized cabin cruisers, skiffs, express cruisers, motor yachts, bow riders, catamarans, trawlers, inflatables, and extraordinary super yachts.

Covering six locations and some 3 million square feet of space, the show has a transportation network of land bus, water craft, and river boats to get around the show.

A great venue for a boat show, Ft. Lauderdale, has the water and land items that make for a great boating experience.

The best day for most is the first day, although one can’t see all of the show in a day. Take even non boaters with you, it’s a terrific venue.

Built in Maryland: Chris-Craft, Owens, Cruis-Along, & Whirlwind

 The Chesapeake Bay Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Club is underwriting this presentation by noted boating expert Jeffrey Beard. Mr. Beard’s private collection of boat catalogs, notes, and other memorabilia rivals those of most Museums within the world. His files and records are considered one of the largest, if not the largest such collections of original material in private hands.

The Chesapeake Bay Chapter – ACBS has underwritten the hour long Boating Event Talk by Jeff Beard that will be fully supported with slides, boat catalogs, and other resources from his personal files as one part of their dedication to furthering Boating Education / Knowledge on Boats and their role in the Chesapeake Bay. Mr. Beard has also agreed to extend his formal presentation time with an open question and answer session immediately afterwards, for those with queries about the boat brands of Maryland.  

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum has made available meeting space in their Steamboat Building on their 18 acre museum grounds and historic buildings.  

CBC-ACBS indicates that this seminar will be held at 2 PM on Saturday, June 19, 2010.

There is no cost to attend this seminar once you are on the museum property. The museum waives any property entrance fee to members of their Museum, but this St. Michaels non-profit organization does collect $13 from non-member adults to support their ongoing efforts. Ask before you pay about Senior, Children, and Military discounts. It’s also a good idea to inquire about Museum membership for you or your family. seabuddy certainly gets more than my donation back in the value after attending an event or two or visiting other Museums as already a member of the CBMM .

17 Outboard 1959 Lyman “Clinker-Built”

1959 Lyman outboard 17'

Offered only for two model years, 1959 and 1960, the 17’ which could take a 75 Hp Evinrude outboard was sandwiched between the 16 1/2’ Lyman model rated for up to a 60 Hp outboard and the Lyman 18’ often powered by twin 35-45 Hp Outboards.

It is a handy boat, lightweight, easy to trailer, and seating five with a large space to walk around in mid-cockpit, between the front and rear seats. A splash well was built-in with this model.

These boats were finished with a special color Lyman exclusive stain and varnished deck, seats, and windshield and a semi-gloss white paint on the lapstrake (clinker-built) hull sides.

Lyman Boats was at its production peak in 1955, with over 5,000 boats produced in sizes from 13’ to 20’ in length. As the founding family died and fiberglass took the lead as the matieral of choice for small boats, Lyman Boats made their last boat in 1973. Bernard Lyman built his first boat in 1873, and by 1875, boat building was his full time way to make a living, according to Tom Koroknay, now known as “Doc Lyman”, the Lyman expert. Note: While Bernard was the founder, his son, Bill, led the company to great heights during his time in mgt.
