If you’re thinking you missed the annual wooden boat show in Coeur d’Alene this summer, don’t abandon ship just yet. The event was postponed until this weekend. And in lieu of the usual display of classic boats from the Northwest, this one features a larger, more varied collection from owners across the U.S. and Canada. The Antique & Classic Boat Society is meeting this week at the Coeur d’Alene Resort, and attendees will have more than 100 boats on display there today and Saturday. “It’s an appreciation of the past; it’s an appreciation of a culture,” said B.K. Powell, a Spokane resident who will be there with Bon Bois, his 1955 Chris-Craft Sportsman. “It’s like walking through the past. All these boats have a story to tell.” This is the third time since 2002 the organization has met in Coeur d’Alene, with the Inland Empire chapter hosting/Scott Maben, SR. More here.

Question: Will you attend the annual wooden boat show this weekend?
