(Clayton, NY) - Antique Boat America/ Antique Boat Canada announced today that they will be hosting the 2013 Wooden Boat Expo and Seminar Series. The first installment of the event will be held in Kingston, Ontario, Canada on April 5th and 6th 2013 on the shores of beautiful Lake Ontario and will be co-hosted at the Maritime Museum and the Steam Pump Museums in Kingston. The Expo will bring together the most notable guest speakers in the wooden boat market today. 

This event has established itself as a foundation of education and industry partnership and these factors continue to drive its growth. We expect these 3 days to be informative, educational and invigorating said Peter Mellon, President of Antique Boat America.
A first class educational line up will be the key feature of the Expo and will include a full slate of educational sessions and presentations.
Of special interest will be stream of Canadian themed presentations which include but will not be limited to the following:

  • Dream Boats of Muskoka
  • Ditchburn Boats
  • Boatbuilders of Muskoka
  • History of Greavette and Barnes Boats
  • The history of Minett and Minett-Shields
  • Shepherd Boats
  • Peterborough Boats
  • Canadian Boatbuilders of the 1000 Islands
  • History of Hutchinson Boats

Feedback from previous events has helped design the format for this Expo and Seminar. As in the past we have worked very hard to design this event based specifically on what the attendees have been requesting, explained Peter Mellon, President of Antique Boat America. We believe, that we are bringing to the Antique Boat Community a series of presentations that will educate and enlighten and are very excited to present this world class lineup of speakers and topics.
The City of Kingston, Ontario will serve as the perfect backdrop and the Maritime Museum and Steam Museum has graciously offered to host this event and open their doors to their facilities and exhibits.
The Four Points Sheraton Hotel in Kingston, Ontario will be our host hotel providing accommodations as well as hosting the evening activities. When making reservations please use the code “Wooden Boat Expo” for the special rate by calling 613-544-4434.
We expect this to be the one of the most significant events of the year related to the hobby of Antique and Classic boats said Mr. Mellon.
