Details for the 2017 Show!

Participants, Member and Friends,

The 2017 Payette Lakes Boat Show is almost here, and we can’t wait to see you!  We have a full show with several boats that were not in the 2016 show.  This year, we have some different wood boats, some great fiber-glassics and even a wooden sailboat!

Just a few details to communicate to you:

Registration – We have just a couple of spots left…contact us immediately if you want to join!

Launching – The boat ramp is downtown, as you enter McCall going North on Hiway 55, take a right hand turn a block before you get to the water on Railroad Ave.  There will be signs directing you from there.  If you are coming from the north on Hiway 55, make the right hand turn in the middle of downtown and look for Railroad Ave on your left.  There will be help at the ramp from 10am to 1pm to get you unloaded so no need to stress about that! Our first activity is Friday at 2pm! See the updated show agenda by clicking here

Trailer parking – There is public parking for trailers in the marina parking lot.  If that location fills up, we will have other options to advise you of upon arrival.

Mooring – We will have pre-assigned slips and can advise you of your location upon arrival.  We have worked out the kinks over the last couple of years and think we have it working well now.  Please moor in your assigned slip upon arrival.  Thanks for your cooperation!

Registration Packet – Once you have docked at the Shore Lodge, find your way to the Ship Store to pick up your registration packet.  It is located in the Lodge at the end of the dock (the right dock if you are looking from the water to the Lodge).

Banquet and dress – We hope you are joining us for the awards banquet dinner on Saturday night.  While this is McCall and casual goes anytime, this is your opportunity for men to wear a sports coats and ladies to don their summer dresses if the mood strikes you.  I have been known to wear a sport coat and ascot with flip-flops!  If you can’t wear an ascot to a classic boat show, where can you wear it?!  That said, if it is 90 degrees us there, I will be in short sleeves!

Bring your fun self – As my wife has said, leave work-self at work!  The purpose of this event is to enjoy like-minded people for the quintessential McCall event!  With all the little details, I am sure we missed something, somewhere.  If that happens to affect you, please smile, be gracious and let us know –  we will attempt to fix it if we can!

All the best and I will see you in about three weeks!

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.

Our tentative date for the 2017 show is July 28-30, 2017.  Put it on your calendar today and join the fun next year!

See you at the show!

The Payette Lakes Antique and Classis boat show will be held on July 29-31, 2016 at the Shore Lodge in beautiful McCall Idaho.  See the schedule of events on our boat show page and make sure to check out our 2016 sponsors that make this show possible!

We hope you will come see us on the docks during this event.  We will have some special things going on and I would like to highlight a few of them.

Watersports Demonstrations – Prestige Water Sports will be showcasing their boats by having watersports demonstrations on Saturday at 11am and 3pm.  On Sunday at 11am, some of our members will take their classic boats out and show the “new schoolers” how its done…”old school” style!

Racing for Charity – On Saturday, from 10am to 2pm, for a small donation, you can be the captain of a scale model “woody” and test your speed and maneuverability on a circuit course.  Half of the proceeds from this event will go to a local McCall youth organization.

And don’t forget the classic boat parade on Saturday morning at 9:30am.  Some of our members would love to include you on a ride.  Just show up on the docks 20 minutes before the start time and kindly ask if anyone is taking passengers.  You will have the boat ride of your life!

We hope to see you there!
