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.  The 2019 show featured 32 entries--the show grows in size and popularity every year.  


Mountainview Woodies Spring Cruise

Our 2021 Spring Cruise will be held on Saturday June 5, 2021 beginning at 10:00 AM.  This is our Seventh 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 if we can dine inside at that time.    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 2021 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 28th Annual Antique and Classic Boat and Car Show on Saturday, August 14, 2021 from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM at the Naples Town Docks. Related events to be evaluated based on the progress of Covid vaccinations include the following:
  • Tuesday, August 10 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. If unable to hold this event, we will consider an optional cruise on this date.

  • Wednesday, August 11 Long Lake cruise to Harrison for lunch. Boaters meet in Naples in front of the town docks at 10:00 AM for a casual and relaxing ride up Long Lake. Boaters are free to peel off and explore the scenery. Boaters can order off the menu at the Villiage Tie Up in Harrison, although you are also welcome to pack a picnic lunch.
  • Thursday, August 12 Sebago Lake excursion with lunch at Migis Lodge. Avid boaters can ride from Brandy Pond thru the Songo Locks to Sebago by meeting on Brandy Pond at 10:30 AM. This is another casual and relaxing ride, this time exploring Sebago and the Dingley Islands before arriving at Migis Lodge. Again, depending on the state of Covid at the time we may not be able to go to Migis Lodge. Another socially appropriate cruise destination will be considered.
  • Friday, August 13 Banquet at Freedom Cafe 5:00 PM, followed by Arrival Parade at 7:30 PM starting from Brandy Pond. This is a real crowd pleaser!
For more information email the show chairman. Stay in touch with us on this one as well because plans may change based on the current situation with Covid.
