Long Lake Wooden Boat Show

Docking Station located beside Town Dock and LL Marina

The Long Lake Boat Show on July 10th showcased a total of 16 boats. Starting at 10am boats were on display from the Town Dock to the Town Beach. Maps were available at a tent set up as a voting station at the town beach. It was a community all-volunteer effort to launch the Wooden Boat Show in its first year. Boat owners participated in a boat parade at 4pm and the day rounded up at the Adirondack Hotel to award a trophy for Spectator’s Choice to the Rivette’s 1961 Chris Craft.

Docks and space for docking were provided by The Town of Long Lake, Helms Aeroservice, Pat Benton, Long Lake Boat Tours and Lakeside Knoshery, Dr. William Lee, Motel Long Lake, Dixie LeBlanc. Robert Keogh and his grandson Robert helped coordinate the docking of boats and Ric Knox of American Boatworks spearheaded the effort to bring this event to life by encouraging boat owners to participate.

There were seven docks and 16 boats, some boats were on display near the waterfront and on the road side.

Antique and Classic Boat Show Slated

Winner 2007 Best Garwood Clayton Boat Show

Long Lake is gearing up to host the first Antique and Classic Boat Show on Saturday, July 10th, 2010 at the Long Lake Waterfront from 10am – 5pm. With so many antique and classic wooden boats hiding along the shorelines of Long Lake a group of passionate Wooden Boat Afficionado’s have decided  to showcase these stylish, beautiful, restored treasures of yesteryear.

Organizer’s have scoped out a diverse group of boats including:  an original 1945 Garwood, having only graced the waters of Long Lake, a 1949 Chriscraft and a 1958 Speedster.  These are just a sampling of the few boats slated to be on display. Other boats on the lake that will hopefully be on scene include Chris Craft’s from 1924, 1962, 1947 as well as original handcrafted guideboats.  Always a crowd pleaser, look for a miniature Tug Boat moving about during the day.

The day’s festivities kick off at 10am and run until 5pm with a Boat Parade “at speed” leaving the town beach at 4pm. A cocktail reception and cash bar will be held at the Adirondack Hotel at 5pm and a trophy will be awarded to “Spectator’s Choice” by fans visiting and touring the boats.
