Heartland Classics Chapter was well represented at the Oklahoma City Boat Show in January 2018. The lineup of five boats was led by Geronimo, a 21 ft 1949 Stancraft Torpedo owned by Clay and Patty Thompson.
The next show boat is Woodwind, Buddy and Sherri Butler’s 1940 Chris Craft 19 ft Custom Barrel Back.
Buddy was the Heartland Classics chair for this event. The organizers of the Oklahoma City Boat Show presented him the “Best of Show” Award for Woodwind.
Stephen and Donnita Dagg finished restoring Carter Rae last year and shared her with the public at this show. (I like the step ladder to see the interior.) Carter Rae is a 1957 Chris Craft 20′ Holiday.
Next, this 1964 Sheperd 22′ Utility named Shep ’64 drew lots of attention. She is owned by John and Glenna Ganster.
Adding colorful variety to the show is Mike and Denese Yancey’s Late Classic 1979 Caravelle I/O.
Thank you to these Heartland Classics members for sharing their time and their boats for the public to admire. People are able to see the boats up close, think about the uniqueness of owning an antique or classic boat, and also to learn more about the Antique and Classic Boat Society organization.
