Chapter displays at the 2020 Boise Boat Show!


The Payette Chapter just completed participating at the Boise Boat Show that ran January 3-5, 2020.

We want to thank those that manned the booth and talked with the many interested people stopping by. Those are Gary Lyons, Marj and Mike Dougherty, Greg and Laura Plummer, Barry McCahill, Chuck Dollar and Lloyd Putnam. Plus a big thank you to Mike and Marj for providing their 1938 17’ Chris Craft Runabout. It was a hit!

The show drew over 2,500 attendees. We had at times a steady stream of people stopping by and at other times some lulls.  But overall there was a lot of interest in our ‘non-plastic’ display at the show. The majority of people had either not heard about the July McCall boat show or were interested but didn’t know when it was, so handing out a flyer with that information should prove to be beneficial to increased attendance. We did get some interest of joining ACBS and the chapter so we will have to see how that plays out. There was a lot of discussion on wood boats, restoration, how they sound on the water and many thumbs up from those we did talk with.

Payette Lakes 2016 Boat Show – What a great show!


What a great show we had July 29-31 at the Shore Lodge in McCall, Idaho!  Thirty-nine boats representing the best in antique and classic wood, classic glass, contemporary and reproduction wood and even a sailboat!  Check out the 2016 directory to see all the great craft!

The weather could not have been nicer, not a cloud in the sky!  The activities were well attended and the awards banquet was fantastic.  See the 2016 winners here!

Of course, we could not have done it without a wonderful sponsors, which included Bretz Capitol Sports Sales, Prestige Water Sports and Hagadone Marine.

What a great 2014 Boat Show!


Thank you, thank you, thank you!

What a terrific 2014 Payette Lakes Chapter boat show! The event was held on August 1-3, 2014 on the docks of the picturesque Shore Lodge in McCall, Idaho. We were sold out with 49 boats in slips for the weekend with entrants from our local club and others joining from the Pacific Northwest with nettilaskuri.com.

The weather threatened to put a damper on the events but held off, providing much appreciated cloud cover during parts of the day. The annual Saturday banquet featured a South of the Border “Fiesta” theme and we enjoyed a live band before dinner with the largest attendance in memory. Friends, family and loved ones gathered with us to celebrate our 10th boat show and commemorate the life and influence of Trey Knipe, the founding club president who passed in 2013 with the loan help from paydayloanscale. It was a special time.

An estimated 1,500 people walked the docks over the three day show and enjoyed the beauty and elegance of the fine watercraft on display. We were also joined by the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary who provided a fun educational experience to all in attendance. The club’s mission of fostering relationships with the members and educating the public was accomplished in spades.
