Dossin Great Lakes Museum, Belle Isle Park, Detroit, MI.
Great Lakes Marine Engine & Boat Expo

A gathering of antique and classic outboard and inboard marine propulsion units, boats and artifacts jointly sponsored by the Great Lakes and Southern Ontario Rowboat Motor Chapters of AOMCI. Theme of the meet is open to interesting marine artifacts of all kinds. Motors both outboard and inboard internal combustion, steam, electric and hand powered. Standalone motor displays as well as units installed on or in period correct boats are welcome. The intent is to display and demonstrate these early units, their history, and their more-than-a-century-old connection to Michigan. There will be great motor brands such as Caille, Waterman, Lockwood-Ash, Evinrude and Aerothrust on hand, just to name a few. A test tank will be available, we will have running motors making smoke during the day. It may be possible that a rowboat motor service clinic will be part of the festivities, featuring service tips on such items as lower units, water pumps, timers and magnetos, and fuel systems/mixer valves. Included in the display will be the oldest running motors in in our club. Don?t miss this opportunity to see them up close and witness them in action. An award will go to the oldest running as well as the easiest starting motor (judged by the least number of attempts to get it started). There will be a Swap and Sell area separate from the motor display, any maritime and marine motor items will be allowed regardless of vintage. We hope you will come out to enjoy the surroundings and camaraderie, visit with the old iron, and take a tour of the wonderful Dossin Museum. We're not offering a lunch, but food vendors are normally on duty, or bring your own and picnic alongside the picturesque Detroit River and watch the boating action on the water. The show opens at 9 AM, hope to see you there.
