Skaneateles Welcomes Antique and Classic Boat Show During Fun-Filled Weekend, July 25-27, 2008

From antique and classic boats, to polo and opera, to blues and barbecue—Skaneateles has it all during the last weekend of July.

Antique and Classic Boat Show – July 25-27

The Antique and Classic Boat Show, hosted by the Skaneateles Area Chamber of Commerce and the Finger Lakes Chapter (FLC) of the Antique and Classic Boat Society, celebrates its 30th anniversary this year with displays on water and land (in Clift Park), musical entertainment, and activities for the entire family.

Among the land displays will be one depicting a slice-of-life from the early 1940s, when the boats were popular.

The backdrop of the display—created by FLC member Arnie Rubenstein—is an 8-foot-square photo of the Skaneateles Boat Co. and its staff members, marking production of the 1,000th Comet sailboat. A workbench in front of the photo contains a 1941 telephone, a 1941 radio and a mannequin dressed as one of the boat company’s craftsmen. Visitors who pick up the phone will hear gossip about costs of the day. The radio station will be “tuned” to five channels—one with a recording of the news bulletin announcing the attack on Pearl Harbor, two with period music, and two with old radio shows. The display will be on view in the lobby of M&T Bank, 33 E. Genesee St., Skaneateles, for a few weeks prior to the show. Following the show, it will be donated to the Skaneateles Historical Society.

This year’s boat show poster—featuring Lightning sailboats and a 1930s-vintage Chris-Craft Runabout—was developed around a watercolor painting by Rochester artist Paul Allen Taylor. Taylor is a self-taught painter whose seascapes and landscapes have won acclaim for their bold, clean colors and impressionistic style. Copies of the poster will be sold at the Lightning Regatta (July 4-6 at the Skaneateles Country Club) and the Antique and Classic Boat Show; in addition, Taylor will autograph copies at Mid-Lakes Navigation during the July 4 First Friday art night. The original painting will be sold through silent auction, with a $700 reserve.

The show gets under way Friday afternoon, with the local Sea Scouts announcing the arrival of each exhibiting boat with a bosun’s pipe. Additional highlights of the show include the parade of boats (Saturday at 3 p.m.), historical village tours, children’s activities, and displays by the Syracuse Model Boat Club.
