2024 Spring Shop Tour

Saturday, April 27, 2024

Boating season is just around the corner which makes this a great time of year to tour the shops of some of central Ontario’s most talented and dedicated boat restorers and builders at this year’s Spring Tour on Saturday, April 27.

It has been a busit Winter sthe boat shops are looking forward to welcoming everyone back to see what they’ve been working on.  A few days before the event, participants will receive a Boat Shop List, complete with addresses and driving directions so that they can plan a driving route.

Event organizer and ACBS-Toronto President, Jeff Titshall made the rounds recently to the shops involved –  it was a full day considering that there are over 10 shops participating this year.  Several are in the Muskoka region (Gravenhurst, Bracebridge, Port Carling, Milford Bay, and Huntsville). In addition, attendees will be able to drop into the Canadian Race Boat Hall of Fame in Bracebridge for a preview of the new facility.

Lunch will be at the Port Carling Legion, at 4 Bailey Street between 11:30 and 2:00.  It’s a fabulous time to meet up with familiar friends and make some new ones while you re-fuel your engine for the shops you want to visit in the afternoon.

The cost for the Boat Shop List and Lunch is $35.00 for members of ACBS, TSACBA, MLAOC & Manotick and $45.00 for Non-Members.  Children (12 and under) are $18.00.  To become a member of ACBS-Toronto, please go to

If you’d rather just do the tour and skip lunch, the ticket price is $20.00/person.  Please show your support by purchasing a ticket for each person in your group.
