Club members participated in the 2022 Annapolis Keels & Wheels event held on September 17th at the Annapolis Yacht Club (AYC). It was a picture perfect day and the event was well attended, with wooden boats displayed both on land and in the water for all participants and guests to admire. The Yacht Club parking lot was full of beautiful classic cars on display for up-close viewing, and owners were on hand to field questions about their pride and joy! One such display was a 1929 Ford Model A originally owned by Arthur Fawcett, founder of Fawcett Boat Supplies, formerly located on Compromise Strret, Annapolis. He used the vehicle from 1948 – 1958 delivering boat supplies to working marinas in the area. This Rumble Seat Roadster was presented by the Minerva Collection along with the 1931 Chris Craft 20’ Model 200 boat that was hooked up to it.
People’s Choice Award votes were cast based on overall appearance and level of preparation from bumper-to-bumper and bow-to-stern. The awards were presented to the winners at the conclusion of the day’s event. Congratulations to Don Schaff, as his 1982 Staudacher runabout won Best in Show.
A great time was had by all!
