Please note: Wooden Boat Rides and the Sunset Cruise are cancelled for July 12 due to high wind and waves.
The Lakeside Wooden Boat Society (LWBS) offers a variety of options to experience the beauty and rich history of Lake Erie and Lakeside from the seat of beautifully restored wooden boats.
Climb aboard Amazing Grace, a 1937, 32′ Richardson Cruiseabout with bench seating and plenty of shaded space to feel the breeze and watch the sunset.
On select evenings, Miss Muffet a fully restored 1956, 38′ Chris Craft Constellation may be available as a second boat if Amazing Grace rides are sold out. Experience the 1950s in style on a large open aft deck for relaxing, with a hardtop at the helm for those wanting out of the sun.
