Sandpoint Boat Show

The Sandpoint show shaped up to be one of the best ever! We had our first 100-year-old entry in the show. BOAT, not participant! We were excited to host a small flotilla of IEACBS member Carlo Ferreira’s historical boats of Dodge Boat Company heritage. Check out the Gallery and Scuttlebutt.

Port Captains Needed! 🏝️

Announcing the ACBS Port Captain Program. Will you be traveling this summer somewhere in the US, Canada or Europe where we have a local chapter presence? Our goal is to obtain volunteers from each of our chapters to act as local guides or hosts to visiting ACBS members. You might be asked for a local restaurant suggestion or what local attractions that a visitor might not want to miss. The level of involvement and activity is up to each of the individuals who volunteer act as a Port Captain. If you want to offer to take members out for a ride that would be the fantastic but not required. We are looking to enhance membership interactions within the ACBS. ACBS is asking each chapter to find one or more individuals to act in this capacity as a local Port Captain. The list of Port Captains will be made available on the members only side of the ACBS.org website. They will build a list of Port Captains over the next month or two so it will be available for the summer. Future enhancements might include some sort of recognition for those individuals acting as Port Captain’s and most certainly stories to be featured in the Rudder, and Weekly Web Watch. Imagine your next trip to Bordeaux, France and receiving local knowledge from our friends from the Bordeaux Chapter, or visiting San Diego, California, and cruising past the Hotel del Coronado in style with the SoCal Chapter, or knowing which coffee shop you can visit by boat while vacationing in Charlevoix, Michigan. Let us know if you would be interested in participating in this ACBS program so we can forward your information on to them as they build this database. Ron

Dry Rot Registration is Open!

2024 Dry Rot Boat Show

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.
