MWCBC boatshow


Mountainview Woodies Classic Boat Club

..a brief history

MWCBC was originally formed in 1993 when a group of wooden boat enthusiasts met for an afternoon of fun at a friend's beach.  As usual, talk turned to the boats and thus the club was born.    The first Antique and Classic Boat Show consisted of a single rope attached to the Naples Town Pier to which was tied a few of the friends' boats.  In 2003 the club was officially chartered as a chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society.  Last year's show featured 42 entries--the show grows in size and popularity every year.  


Mountainview Woodies Spring Cruise

Our 2017 Spring Cruise will be held on Saturday June 3, 2017 beginning at 10:00 AM.  This is our Third Annual Spring Cruise.   We will be launching from the town ramp in Harrison, and ample trailer parking will be available.  We will take a casual tour down the lake stopping for lunch at the Freedom Cafe where we will dine off their menu.  RSVP is requested so we can give the Freedom Cafe a headcount so they know how many to set up and plan for.  Also, if you have room in your boat for passengers and you are willing to take them, please let me know how many you are comfortable taking in case somebody needs a ride.  Please RSVP for this event by emailing us with the count in your party.  You won't want to miss kicking off the season with us!

Mountainview Woodies 2017 Naples Boat Show

2004 boatshow In the days leading up to the Saturday show, additional events are also held, including a Sebago Lake tour and picnic, a reception followed by an antique boat parade, and a charity event in which rides are given to children at Camp Sunshine on Sebago Lake.  Camp Sunshine is a retreat for children dealing with major health issues, and the rides on the vintage boats have proven to be very popular with the children and with the participants alike.

The Mountainview Woodies Classic Boat Club of Maine will be holding our 24th Annual Antique and Classic Boat and Car Show on Saturday, August 12, 2017 from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM at the Naples Town Docks. Related events include the following:
  • Tuesday, August 8 rides for campers at Camp Sunshine. Come donate your time and a little fuel to give these kids an experience that they (and you) will never forget! This is a great way to give back and let them experience a little of the nostalgia and pleasure we all remember from our youth. Enthusiastic boaters can ride from Brandy Pond thru the Songo Locks into Sebago by meeting on Brandy Pond at 10:30 AM.
