Heartland Classics Chapter of the ACBS

Heartland Classics Chapter of the Antique & Classic Boat Society, Inc. (ACBS), is an organization dedicated to the collection, restoration, preservation, and the safe enjoyment of classic boating.

The Chapter provides an organization where people with a common interest and love the history of antique, vintage, and retro boats can come together with friends and colleagues in a spirit of fellowship, to share dreams, adventures, knowledge, and history of classic boating.

Established in 1993, the club’s core membership draws individuals from America’s heartland including Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas. Our membership is made up of both individuals and families with a real interest in classic boating. Although, it is not mandatory to own a boat to become a member in classic boating, many members do own one or more classic or antique boats manufactured with wood, metal, or fiberglass. Many of the yesteryear’s watercraft that are among our member boats are Chris-Craft, Century, Carver, Elgin, Garwood, Owens, Higgins, Thompson, Correct-Craft, Lyman, Elko, Hacker-Craft, and Yellow Jacket.

Bruce Hurst has resurrected a forgotten model boat project during this “quiet summer”.

The tugboat I have been working on is S.T. Gondia. It was built in 1926 & scrapped in 1967. She was stationed at the Royal Docks in London so there is a strong possibility that she has aided one or all of the ships that I served on as that is where we docked.
She has a gallant history.  S.T. (steam tug) Gondia was credited with saving 100’s of troops on the Thames during World War II.
I had done the keel & frames several years ago & forgot about it till January, the model is far from perfect for various reasons but it has been fun. Model dimensions are hull length 42in., beam l0in. The superstructure is sitting on a temporary deck & it’s still work in progress.
 
Bruce, we’ll be eager to see the finished tug.
