South Lake Tahoe, CA…The South Tahoe Wooden Boat Classic Boat Show this last weekend at the Tahoe Keys Marina was a perfect event for those who love history, beauty, fine woodworking and all things mechanical. The priceless boats on display were more than just classic wooden boats lovingly restored the also represented the pinnacle of boatmaking skill for each of the eras represented. From the 1920s – the 1960’s and even some current wooden boat reproductions.
