The Finger Lakes Region of central New York State takes its name from eleven slender lakes running in a generally north-south direction through the Allegheny Plateau. When viewed from above, the five largest lakes resemble the outstretched fingers of a giant hand. Skaneateles Lake is the second-most easterly of the Finger Lakes and has become the unofficial home of the Finger Lakes Chapter of ACBS.


The Chapter holds events throughout the year for members to attend including our Annual Boat Show on the last full weekend of July on Skaneateles Lake.  To learn more about the Boat Show, visit our Boat Show page.




Our Mission

The Finger Lakes Chapter of the ACBS exists to promote the love and enjoyment of classic boating in the region. 

Someone asked me, if I were stranded on a desert island what book would I bring... ‘How to Build a Boat.’
