Event Description

Antique Boat Show & Porsche Show

Hartwell Marina in Hartwell, Georgia

The Carolinas Region and Peachstate Region have again been invited to participate in a joint show with the Blue Ridge Chapter of the Antique Wooden Boat Association. This note is to provide you with information about the Antique Boat Show & Porsche Show being planned for Saturday, April 13th. About 50 Porsches participated in last year's event and those in attendance voiced interest in particpating on a regular basis. The show will again be held at the Hartwell Marina in Hartwell, Georgia.

The Antique Wooden Boat Show has been an annual event since 1993. It is hosted by the Blue Ridge Chapter of the Antique Boat Association. Last year, we were contacted by Larry Torrence of the Lake Hartwell Marketing Alliance, requesting joint participation in the event by members of the Porsche Club Carolinas and Peachstate Regions to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Lake Hartwell. For your reference, the web site for the Hartwell Marina is included below.

The organizers are expecting 50 or more classic wooden boats to participate in this year's show. We are looking for about 45 Porsches to participate as well to add to the interest of the show. We have included some photos of last year's show to give you an idea of the types of boats and vehicles in attendance. Most boast are Chris Craft and Gar Wood models.

As for the Porsche part of the show, any and all Porsches are eligible. The plans for the event include the following:

  • The PCA cars will be the only vehicles parked inside the marina venue.
  • All show spectators will park off-site and be shuttled in to the venue.
  • The Porsches will be parking on the paved lot in front of the marina office building.
  • All PCA members are welcome to attend but only the first 45 RSVPs will be guarenteed inclusion in the show and parking within the venue.
  • The actual show hours are 10:00am to 4:00pm.
  • PCA participants would meet at a designated "staging" area about two miles from the venue, between 8:15am and 8:45am.
  • At 8:50am, the Porsche group would parade into the venue from the staging area accompanied by a police escort.
  • PCA participants would be expected to remain on display until at least 2:00pm.
  • We will be displaying our Regional banners as a part of the display.
  • Show organizers will have a professional photographer on site to take pictures of any Porsche owner's who want to pose their vehicles under the club banner with the wooden boats in the background.

In addition to the boats and cars on display, there will be food vendors, arts & crafts vendors, activities for children (build a boat, RC controlled boats, T-shirts, etc.) and a number of boat rides with their owners for PCA attendees.

This will be a joint Regional event between Carolinas and Peachstate.

All RSVPs for participants are due no later than April 3rd and should be sent to John Budinich We will need to limit participation to 45 vehicles but additional spectators are more than welcome to join us. Any questions you may have should be directed to John as well. All 45 show participants will receive a confirmation email with any last minute updates.
