President's Welcome Message

Welcome to the website for the Columbia~Willamette Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society (ACBS).  We are a diverse group of individuals with a passion for classic, antique & historic boats.

Our goal, as a chapter, is to provide an opportunity for vintage boat enthusiasts to get together and share knowledge, experience and enjoyment in old boats.  We are a volunteer organization who enjoys finding, discussing, restoring and operating classic boats. You don’t need a boat to join.  We’re always looking for people with a love for boats and there’s always room on a member boat at our in-water functions, so if you’re interested in joining but thought that you needed a boat, you were wrong!  Check out the national ACBS website and become a member today.

Our events calendar is a living document that is continually updated so be sure to check often for future events and activities.  Our chapter covers the state of Oregon and Southern Washington for the ACBS and we are fortunate to be in such a beautiful part of the country with a rich marine heritage and bounty of wonderful boats.

Whether you’re into fast classic fiberglass boats or prefer to motor slowly in your wooden cruiser, we’re the club for you.  If you’ve always wanted an old boat but weren’t sure how to go about it, we can help you there too.  We have workshops that cover the technical aspects of maintaining boats, inspecting prior to purchase among many other things. 

Please take your time in exploring our website.  This is an active group and we get a lot of use out of our boats in the summer.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

Happy Boating!
