About Us

Going for a ride at the show We are an active group of local enthusiasts who love our boats and love to use them. We publish a newsletter for our members 3 to 4 times a year. For our meetings, we generally try to have something to attract our members, guests, and Lyman loving friends. In the past, we've had some great presentations on boat restoration and maintenance topics at these meetings. We also started the Classic Lyman Group on Yahoo which is a FREE open discussion group.
