I went down to the Tahoe Keys Marina for the 5th annual South Lake Tahoe classic wooden boat show, and I got to see a bunch of great antique boats and classic boat reproductions; and got to talk to the passionate people who restore and care for these amazing boats. I got to talk to John Walti, the vice-commodore of the vintage division of the California Speedboat Association, who showed me the FT Barron perpetual trophy with every race winner since the club was founded in 1934. I also got to talk to the owners of the 1924 gold-cup racer the "Baby Skipalong", which was widely considered to be the fastest boat on Lake Tahoe in the late 1920s. I got to talk to the owner of a reproduction 1938 Ventnor Gold-cup boat that was originally designed to carry a 500Lbs bomb in it's bow; as well as...

Conor Knighton takes us on a ride aboard some classic wooden motorboats, whose sleek lines and elegant fixtures hark back to a golden era of maritime recreation.
I discovered this boat at the very end of my dive in June 2015. Revisited 3 weeks later to video. It sits deep in cold (43F at depth) California mountain lake water at 6400ft. altitude. I took the video on 3 July 2015.
Support Tally Ho here; http://sampsonboat.co.uk/support-tally-ho - I am on a crazy one-man mission to restore this historic classic sailing yacht, designed by Albert Strange in 1909. Tally Ho is a wooden gaff cutter, and is best-known for winning the Fastnet race in 1927. In this episode, I start uncovering Tally Ho's huge teak keel timber, jackhammering the concrete out of the bilge and removing the prop shaft. I go for a hike with a new friend, and I get a worrying visit from the building inspector about my new boat-shed.

Classic boats are like classic cars. They are traditional sailing yachts, and are usually (but not always) made of wood. Read more at myboatexpert.blogspot.com It's important to note that the term classic does not mean "old" or "antique". Instead, it refers to the design. Most classic boats are wooden boats, and a lot of them are old boats that have been lovingly restored, but a boat made of more modern materials could be referred to as classic.
The Antique Boat Museum located in the beautiful 1000 Islands region of upstate New York introduces this pilot episode of Old Boat Stories. The Museum is widely known throughout the boating world as being the premier museum of antique and classic boats.

In this episode, the ABM hopes to create growth and interest in wooden boating and boat restoration, while sharing the beauty of the region the ABM calls home.

Corky Coker found this very rare early V8 Chevrolet chassis and early 1950s runabout in North Alabama. Finding them was the first challenge, now getting them out of the basement of this old Chevrolet dealership is the issue. Chevrolet's first attempt at building a V8 in 1917 and 1918 put a water-cooled overhead valve V8 on the road nearly 40 years before the introduction of the legendary small block V8. The engine feature exposed valve train components protected by a simple metal shield. The engine cranked out a ground-pounding 36 horsepower. The Series D Chevrolet that the engine was equipped in was a slow seller in showrooms and quickly went out of production. This very rare example of a complete Series D chassis was used as a showroom display at the now closed Word Chevrolet in Scottsb...
