Welcome To Sunnyland
We love old boats!!
Thanks for visiting our site. The Sunnyland Antique and Classic Boat Society is located in Sunny Florida. We have so much water for boating and such fantastic year round weather, it's no surprise that Sunnyland is one of the largest chapters of ACBS. Our annual Boat Festival, held in March, is eagerly anticipated by boat enthusiasts from all over the country – and our volunteers are the heart and soul of the show. Whether it's an antique wood sedan, classic runabout or classic glass, skiff or canoe - Sunnyland members love to cruise, sand, varnish, admire and talk to others about our boats. Please enjoy our site, and if you are not an ACBS member - consider joining to help us preserve and pass on these beautiful timepieces so they can be enjoyed by all for many years to come.
Sunnyland Member Boat Story - Bill & Tanya Ross
Every Boat has a Story……What’s YOURS?
The Sunnyland Chapter is highlighting member boats. Our first story comes from members Bill and Tanya Ross, who live in Miami Florida. Their 1963 Century Resorter is a family owned boat, purchased in the Summer of 1962 by Bill's Dad, Jerry.
Bill's Century is named "Bye Bye Freddy", after their neighbor Fred who owned a Chris Craft. Bill and his family would go blazing by their neighbor in the Century, and Fred could read the boat name "Bye Bye Freddy" on the transom!
Bill, Tanya and their lovely children are usually at the Sunnyland Boat Show with their family Century. It's a fun user boat with a great story......Every Boat Has a Story.....What's Yours? Send us your boat story, we'd love to hear from you!
