Join us in Chicago Sept 16th for the Chicago Classic Boat Rendevous on the NEW downtown Riverwalk https://www.facebook.com/events/357287051358385/ CHICAGO CLASSIC BOAT RENDEVOUS SEPT 16TH
First ever Classic Boat Rendezvous on the Chicago River Walk at the center of town on Saturday, September 16 from 3-8pm. Could this be the first event of this kind held in the heart of a major US city?
The city has given us close to 1000′ of frontage on the river downtown and we believe depending on the size of boats registered we may be able to accommodate as many as 40 boats. There will be a registration fee of $30 to help defray costs (insurance, security, entertainment and proper fendering for the boats).
We hope classic boats planning to attend the annual convention in Racine may consider staying in the Midwest for another week to have a chance to enjoy downtown Chicago on a Saturday in September. In addition, the Canal Street Marina has offered to provide secure gated space for all trailered boats attending the Rendezvous at no charge.
We are preparing registration materials and will have both posters and tee-shirts available. But because space is so limited (max 40 boats) and we expect a number of registrants from Chicago, interested classic boat owners should feel free to contact Toby directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.

A little emotional today, I know what it’s like when you realize a hurricane is coming right at your boat. And tonight, as a hurricane is bearing down on Texas the memories of that day with #nauticinderella come flooding back again. I’m safe 200 miles away from the coast but have friends Casey Seidl, his wife Shellee Baker Seidl and daughter live on “Gods Machine”, they have personally put a ton of blood, sweat, and tears into that boat and they are ground zero for Hurricane Harvey in Rockport with their 1959 55′ Constellation. I know what it’s like to clear everything that means anything to you off your boat and prepare to possibly lose her … and that’s what they are doing tonight. Several people have messaged me and I’m totally fine, but if you pray for anyone here in this group pray for them.
