CLAYTON, New York (July 15, 2013) – The Antique Boat Museum (ABM), North America’s premier freshwater nautical museum based in Clayton, New York, is pleased to announce that the Museum has made a ‘splash’ in the July/August issue of Great Lakes Boating magazine.

The newly released issue of Great Lakes Boating magazine (July/August 2013) features the ABM with a multiple page spread, as well as the front cover.

The front cover of the magazine features Miss 1000 Islands II, the Museum’s Hacker-Craft speedboat which is available for rides on the St. Lawrence River. The inside of the magazine boasts content and photographs from page 10 through page 16, and the cover photo reappears on the page 6 Table of Contents, which includes background on the boat.

In May, Jerry Koncel, Associate Editor, made a multi-day visit to the ABM to learn more about the collection, as well as the numerous courses and events hosted by the Museum.

The July/August issue is on newsstands now or can be viewed online at [Note: my link will forward you to the actual digital issue, so you will not need to search for it. Or click here to go to their website.]

Located on the St. Lawrence River in the 1000 Islands, the Antique Boat Museum features a collection of over 300 antique and classic boats, among thousands of recreational boating artifacts.
