AOMCI Summer Meet and Annual Meeting
June 16th and 17th
By: Pete DeVito
The Antique Outboard Motor Club, Inc. (AOMCI) had their summer meet and annual meeting June 16th and 17th at the Lake Shipp Park located on the Winter Haven chain of lakes. Many attending the weekend events were members of both the AOMCI and the Sunnyland Chapter of the ACBS. There was a great mix of boats that participated in the weekend events that included wood, fiberglass and aluminum.
On Friday morning there was a shop tour of Pete DeVito’s shop with most all the early birds attending. At 11:30am the group headed down the street to the Harborside Restaurant for lunch. After lunch the group launched at the nearby ramp and cruised nine or ten lakes located on the south end of the Winter Haven chain. Everyone had a great time exploring some new areas even though it was a windy and rough day on the water. The great news is there were no mishaps all day.
