Eagle Mountain Classic Boat Club

Eagle Mountain Classic Boat Club History

The Eagle Mountain Classic Boat Club ("EMCBC") was formed in February 1989 to promote the restoration and enjoyment of Classic and Wooden boats. Although there were other clubs like ours, there were none in Fort Worth, Texas. Members of the Eagle Mountain Classic Boat Club share our ideas, experiences and resources. Each one of us comes from a different walk of life and profession, however we all share a common interest in antique and classic boating. Some of our members have classics such as Chris-Craft Commander, Chris-Craft Cavalier, Chris-Craft Constellation, Chris-Craft Roamer, Chris-Craft Catalina, and many other models of Chris-Craft. Also, Century, Carver, Elgin, Garwood, Owens, Higgins, Thompson, Correct-Craft, Lyman, Elko, Hacker-Craft, Burns Craft, Riva, Roughwater, classic sailboat brands, canoes, and Yellow Jacket. We also organize fun activities each month. where we can share and enjoy our common interests, such as our annual Boat Project, wherein members actually construct a small craft or restore a Classic Boat to show condition for display and auction at our Annual Wood Waves and Wheels Classic Boat and Auto Show held in May each year @ the Fort Worth Boat Club.

Our Goal

The goal of the chapter is to promote the preservation and enjoyment of antique and special interest watercraft of all types by:

  • Promoting public displays and recreation of member boats.

  • Acting as a historical repository for boating related information.

  • Encouraging social activities to members and their families.

  • Promoting education and preservation through technical workshops with subject matter expert’s.

Winter Restoration Workshop

The Eagle Mountain Classic Boat Club restoration workshop gives the opportunity for classic boaters to come together to learn and share knowledge about classic boating and the preservation of vintage and wooden classic boats.

Topics covered at past workshops include wood boat repair, boat plank replacement, stripping, staining & varnishing wooden boats, fiberglass boat repair, and engine maintenance. EMCBC Classics auction / swap meet is held at this event and where attendees bring unwanted marine “stuff” to donate to the club for the silent auction. Proceeds help fund our activities.

Each year the workshop is organized by our Workshop Event Chair, Dan Sober.

We Welcome Topic Suggestions and Volunteer Speakers for our meetings and workshops
