Antique & Classic Boat Show at Galley Marina
May 21, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
The 2016 RDC Triangle Antique & Classic Boat Show at Galley Marina Saturday, May 21st
This year’s RDC Triangle Antique & Classic Boat Show is hosted by the Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill Triangle Chapter of ACBS. We expect between 30 and 40 boats, some in-water and some out. The marquee boat is Barbour which was built in New Bern. Boats on display will include Chris Craft, MFG, Tonka Craft, Lyman and some scratch-built models. Most boats are owner-restored/built/preserved while some have been professionally done. The oldest will be a catboat-style sailboat built in 1928 with others going up to the 1960s and 70s. Owners will be on hand to answer questions and talk about their boats and the hobby in general. There will also be a display of classic cars and hot rods on the marina site. Besides the RDC Triangle Boat Show on Saturday there will be a Friday tour of the Hatteras Yacht Plant, an awards dinner at the Eastern Carolina Yacht Club and a Sunday river cruise. Updated details may be found on the RDC Triangle chapter website.
