August 30th – September 2nd, 2024

Priest Lake, Idaho 👀

Who’s ready to start thinking about summer and boat shows, especially the Priest Lake Dry Rot registration? Get your registration filled out and sent in. North Idaho’s Dry Rot Show never disappoints for a fun filled, exciting event using your boat or getting to ride in someone else’s boat. Rain or shine (or smoke)…the show goes on, so bring the appropriate clothing, keeping in mind you might see all kinds of weather – which seems to just bring more adventures & stories. https://priestlakedryrot.com/

All About Us

Inland Empire ACBS was started from members who were already members of other chapters in the northwest.  We realized there was a core of members and even more to be added in northern Idaho and eastern Washington, a group petitioned to be recognized as a chapter in 2000. Inland Empire Chapter is still part of the northwest group of chapters (Columbia Willamette, Pacific Northwest, Big Sky and Okanagan Chapters) and we coordinate our events throughout the summer so that there is always a near-by boat show with no overlapping conflicts. 

By now, Inland Empire members come from far and wide, as do event participants, just to be in the beautiful scenery and in the clear lakes with their vintage boats.

History of Inland Empire Antique & Classic Boat Society

The Inland Empire ACBS was started from members who were already members of other chapters in the northwest.  We realized there was a core group of members and even more to be added in northern Idaho and eastern Washington, the group petitioned to be recognized as an official chapter in 2000. Inland Empire Chapter is still part of the northwest group of chapters (Columbia Willamette, Pacific Northwest, Big Sky and Okanagan Chapters). The Inland Empire ACBS has 120 members as of the winter of 2024 and hosts three boat shows during the summer (Sandpoint Boat Show, Coeur D' Alene Festival, and Dry Rot Boat Show at Priest Lake). Inland Empire ACBS also posts a newsletter called The Scuttlebutt and the Trading Dock. Third issue of the Inland Scuttlebutt Summer of 2001. Click to view.
