Today, our web site continues our tradition as the preeminent online resource for classic boats. One of their members, Pat Ford, a wooden boat restorer, has done a outstanding job programming their site, as well as the ACBS Headquarters Web Page. Their newsletter "PROP WASH" is the best of all the newsletters, includes discussion group.

Water Wonderland Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society's has a web site.

The award-winning publication includes articles on similar topics as the Rudder, but the articles are from their very own members. Our chapter has many knowledgeable restorers, who are helpful and willing to share their experiences. They have included a few articles on the web site for your viewing!

The Indiana Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society, Inc. began as an impromptu collaboration of two friends, Mike Boone and Russ Smith, who loved and restored antique wooden boats. After attending the Buckeye Lake, OH wooden boat show in 1981, Mike began planning his first wooden boat show. He enlisted the aid of his friend, Russ Smith, and together, they held their first antique boat show.   The website has much to offer.
