The Southern New England Chapter (SNEC) of The Antique and Classic Boat Society will present the 31st annual “Mahogany Memories” boat and car show on the grounds and docks of the Connecticut River Museum on Saturday, July 11 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Admission is free.

The show will feature many examples of the finest classic wooden and fiberglass boats commonly seen in the area during the last century. Boats built by Chris Craft, Century, Lyman, Gar Wood, Elco and many more will be showcased.

Boat owners will be on hand to talk about their boats, exchange ideas and share the joys of using and preserving these beautiful “woodies” and other memorable classics.  The show will also feature classic cars.

SNEC president David McFarlin said, “The SNEC members are always excited to participate in this show at the Connecticut River Museum. They all work hard at restoring and maintaining these wonderful boats and enjoy showing them to the public.”

It is unclear whether any of the vehicles are for sale.

The Connecticut River Museum is located at 67 Main Street in historic Essex, Connecticut, on the waterfront.  For more information on the Mahogany Memories Antique and Classic Boat Show and other Connecticut River Museum events, go to or call 860-767-8269.
