This is a great ACBS show, held every year the third weekend in July in Hammondsport, NY, on Keuka Lake. How can you not be entranced by Keuka Lake and the village of Hammondsport?

Let’s start with the lake. Keuka is the only Finger Lake with a “Y” shape. All the other Finger Lakes are long and narrow. As a result, the 20 mile long lake has a 60 mile long shoreline! The shoreline is mostly developed with residences, both seasonal and year-round, as well as some great restaurants. Branchport and Penn Yan are at the northern end of the lake, offering lodging, restaurants, and full service marinas. One of the nicest state campgrounds you will find in New York is near Branchport. It is a full service park with campgrounds, a beach, boat launch, docks for rent, a lake-side building that can be rented, and one of the coolest playgrounds you’ve ever seen! The Keuka Lake Wine Trail boasts 8 wineries! The deep lake (up to 186’) supports a healthy trout and salmon fishery, as well as bass and perch and a large population of baitfish (mostly alewives).

The village of Hammondsport was founded around 1827 by Lazarus Hammond, and incorporated in 1856. The village later became a center for New York’s wine industry. Other than wine, the village’s primary claim to fame was as the birthplace and industrial center of Glenn Curtis (1878-1930). Curtis was a renowned expert on gasoline engines, and designer and manufacturer of motorcycles and early aircraft and seaplanes. There is a sizable and excellent museum just south of Hammondsport that celebrates Curtis’ genius with all things mechanical. The Hammondsport Chamber of Commerce trumpets itself as “The Cradle of Aviation and Heart of the New York State Wine Region” and calls Keuka Lake “Jewel of the Finger Lakes.” The village is relatively small (around 700 people in less than ½ square mile), but was voted “America’s Coolest Small Town” last year by Budget Travel Magazine (actually it was a tie with Beaufort, NC). It has many lodging options and a number of restaurant choices from simple and inexpensive to fancy and costly. See the chamber website for more info: www.corningfingerlakes.com/about/towns-villages/hammondsport

For my money, you could not ask for a more unique, fun, and wonderful place for a Northeast classic boat show the 3rd weekend every July. Mark your calendars now for July 19, 20 and 21, 2013, and let’s show folks how cool our classic fiberglass boats are!

Any questions, email or PM me. I’ll help however I can. Thanks!

Best of luck with recovery John. My shoulders took longer than normal, so I just hope you're "more" normal and get back in shape quick and get that Devil Ray ready! Plus our puppies could meet...

That will be great Steve. Hope to see you there. Haven't had much response from others, but not much more I can do. I hope a lot of glassics show up too!

Wayne is a nice little town, good for you! Enjoy!

My wife and I will be there again this year. Didn't work out last year with not having a tow vehicle and all. We plan on staying over at a B&B if it works out. Grandma may have to keep the kids for the weekend. :)

Did you find a B&B yet Dave? I arranged for a dog sitter, so we have thereby opened up housing potential.

Can't wait!

Did you get reg #1 again, or did someone beat you to it?

Not this year. Mystic Seaport is re-launching the Charles Morgan that weekend, which is a big deal and I want to be here for that. I may do next year as part of a "50th anniversary tour" for the Aqua Ray. Stay tuned for details.

We cancelled out this morning. This triple digit heat index is killing me. I am not going to sit out at a boat show in high temps and humidity. Doesn't sound like fun to me. We'll see what happens.

Changed the impeller in the old merc yesterday to get ready for the boat show. Was rolling in sweat by the time I was done, and doing the best I could to keep from getting eaten alive by the largest mosquito infestation I have ever seen since we bought this place.

Bah.

Thanks Ron. Yup, love Keuka, but just can't sit out in heat for 3 days. Had to make a decision today to cancel the hotel reservation. With my luck...

We'll be there, but we got a spot in the water so we can take off if we get sick of sitting around in the sun, (which we most likely will).

I guess Steve G and I will have to represent FiberGlassics.

Ron, I tried to call you last week to see if you could send the banner, did your cell # change?

Maybe next year...
