Dedicated to those who love and care for Vintage, Classic Boats in America’s Heartland

 The 2022 Heartland Classics Winter Workshop will be held at a member’s shop by Lake of the Ozarks.  There’s so much to learn, so much to share, and it’s a break at the end of winter.



The Annual Winter Restoration Workshop

Heartland Classics’ restoration workshop gives the opportunity for classic boaters to come together to learn and share knowledge about classic boating and the preservation of vintage and wooden classic boats.

Topics covered at past workshops include wood boat repair, boat plank replacement, stripping, staining & varnishing wooden boats, fiberglass boat repair, and engine maintenance.

Heartland Classics silent auction / swap meet is held at this event. Attendees bring unwanted marine “stuff” to donate to the club for the silent auction. Proceeds help fund the Mahogany & Chrome Newsletter.

For 18 years, the workshop has been organized by the Workshop Event Chair, Dan Diehl and held at Howard Classic Boats by Grand Lake in Oklahoma.  2022 is the first Winter Workshop to be held at Lake of the Ozarks organized by John Mason.​
