The Antique Boat Center in Cincinnati will be having an open house on Jan. 21 (Saturday), 2012. The president of the Century Boat Club, Thomas Holmes will be speaking. Thomas' father was a key employee at Century and Thomas worked at the factory as a young man. Even if you are not so interested in the wooden boats, it is really interesting and fun to listen to the history these guys relay to us.
Then on February 18, 2012 (also Saturday), Charles Mistele will be speaking. He has owned the original 1930 Garwood, "Miss America IX" for 42 years and will speak of life with a living legend. We saw Charles' presentation at the Smith Mountain Boat Show, and it was very interesting.
We have enjoyed every one of the Saturday Presentations at the Antique Boat Center. We learn things every time and it is fun socializing with other fellow antique boaters.
