Party at Howard’s and Cheryl’s
Here are the photos from the event. These show the multiple themes of this recent party of the Chesapeake Bay Chapter of the ACBS.
First, it was a Celebration of Life for Dominic Fiaschetti, a master woodworker/classic boat owner and past President. Second, it was a “good fun” party of food, refreshments, and looking / talking about classic boats and old cars. Third, there was a live band. Fourth, it was the installation of the CBC-ACBS Officers and Board for 2015. Fifth, some Awards recognizing special folks/situations were handed out.
Dominic was a good friend to me and many others. He was a past Chesapeake Bay Chapter – ACBS President, ran the boat show registration for many years, a past CBC board member, and a multi-term organizer of many club events
The www.Oldtimeworld.com property houses the various businesses of collecting, selling, restoring, and valuing classic boats, engines, and old cars as well as collectibles. How many boats, items, and cars? I do not know, but it is easily several hundred and it is into the thousands most likely. At the party we were given essentially the three hour tour that is normally $10.00 per person. This tour is by appointment only. Please call Howard at 301-627-2114.
Howard restored this Ventnor race boat. She is a looker in person and is exciting enough that she has been featured on various boating posters, shown both in and out of the water.
Mr. Johnson is considered THE expert on Whirlwind boats. This one boat shown in my photos set was literally flying outside one of the pole barn buildings. These boats were built by the Molded Products Inc. that was in Cockeysville, Maryland from about1947 to 1962. Whirlwind boats were built using "molded plywood" construction, in which very thin strips of resin-impregnated wood were wrapped around a mold in an overlapping, crossing layers. This composite structure was then cooked in an autoclave using heat and vacuum to create a strong, light-weight hull.
OldTimeWorld has a building full of classic cruisers as well as all the trailer-able boats. Here is just one pictured
Joe Sibilia is the outgoing CBC President. He was in charge of the CBC for two (one year each) terms. Thank you, Joe, for your dedication to ACBS and the Chesapeake Bay Chapter.
Howard and Cheryl Johnson were the awarded the President’s choice “Members of the Year” recognition. Besides throwing a great party, they are the Editors of the Club’s quarterly Newsletter. They see to it that this gets written and out to all the CBC members and that it is chock full of Classic Boating news and information.
