ANTIQUE & CLASSIC BOAT DISPLAY

Lobby D

Everybody has a vintage boat memory, whether wood, fiberglass or aluminum! Relive yours at the vintage boat displayboating enthusiasts and nautical history buffs alike will enjoy this fascinating look at a bygone era.

This year's featured boat is a 1929 24' Hackercraft, Baby Dolphin. John Hacker

was considered one of the premier North American naval architects of the 20th century. Hackercraft boats were renowned for their excellent ride, handling and balance in the water. This example was built at the peak of Hackercraft —the end of the roaring twenties.

Baby Dolphin is a "baby" version of the larger and much more expensive 27' and 29' Dolphin models, but had all the design panache, features, and power of its big brothers. The boat performs admirably powered by a Scripps model 150 hp flathead sixcylinder engine.

of the water

Take the first step towards learning the boating rules of the road and simple boating etiquette with this beginner’s guide, 5 Essential Rules of the Water, powered by Progressive®.
