Antique Outboard and Boat Show

In what is becoming a Belle Isle tradition, the Dossin Great Lakes Museum will host a colorful gathering of antique outboard motors, model ships and vintage boats on Saturday, July 27 from 10 am – 3 pm. The outboard motor, which was first commercially manufactured in Detroit, democratized the boating industry. Given the lakes, rivers and mechanical know-how in the region, it is not surprising that Michigan and Ontario have a rich history of building, driving and racing outboards and the boats designed to accommodate them.

Historic hulls, superb models, and rare engines will be on display in the museum’s Aaron DeRoy Hall. This event, now in its fifth year, is being organized by the Great Lakes Chapter and Southern Ontario Rowboat Motor Chapter of the Antique Outboard Motor Club, Inc., in cooperation with the Detroit Historical Society.

See the museum’s newest exhibition, ‘River Recreation and Lakeside Leisure,’ while you’re here!
