Lake Tahoe Concours d' Elegance set for Obexer's this summer

The date and location for this summer's 43rd historic wooden boat show will be August 7-8, 2015 at Obexer's Boat Company in Homewood. Last year was the highest attended show to date and organizers (Tahoe Yacht Club Foundation) are looking forward to an even bigger show this year.

The "Marque", or key class of boat this year will be "Vintage V-12" powered watercraft. V-12's from a number of manufacturers, including Packard, Lincoln, Hispano-Suiza, Lycoming, Rolls-Royce, and Allison were put in anything from runabouts to race boats. The symphony of sound that these engines produce are music to the ears of boat lovers and gear heads.

The wooden boats will be judged on a 100 point scale. 100 points is the highest possible score, with points deducted for blemishes or imperfections from original.

The show runs 10:00am to 4:30pm on Friday, 9:00am to 4:30pm on Saturday. Tickets for one day are $25 dollars in advance, $30 dollars day of the show.

For boat registration and additional information see the Lake Tahoe Concours website.
