Payette Lakes Chapter, ACBS, Joins MHN; Vancouver Maritime Museum Director to Leave

Classic boat enthusiasts in the Payette Lakes region of central Idaho have formed the Payette Lakes Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society and they have joined Maritime Heritage Network. The chapter provides Idaho residents with a common interest in and love of historic, antique and classic boats with a place where friends can gather to protect the heritage of boating. The chapter promotes the preservation and restoration of class pleasure craft. Payette Lakes has been a mecca for wooden boating for many years.

Jim Delgado, director of the Vancouver, B.C., Maritime Museum, plans to leave his post to head the U.S.-based Institute of Nautical Archaeology, according to an article in the Toronto Globe and Mail.
