During the 2022 Antique & Classic Boat Society Annual International Meeting & Show, the Antique Boat Museum in Clayton, New York, announced the latest inductees into its Hall of Fame, launched in 2019 to honor individuals who have made a large impact in the boating community and helped shape the future of ABM.
This year’s inductees were Jim and Lorraine Ellis (Tony) Lewis, who were among the founders of ABM and were ardent boaters during their lifetimes who helped support the future of ABM and preserve the history of boating.
Carl Mammel, a Director Emeritus of the Legacy of the Lakes Museum in Alexandria, Minnesota, who formed a collection of rare boats over many years while recognizing the importance of preserving lake traditions and memories for generations to come.
William Morgan, one of those most responsible for reviving wooden speedboat building in North America during his lifetime, and who resurrected the Hacker-Craft brand and restored or built replicas of over 20 Gold Cup racers of the 1930s.
And Allan Newell, Trustee Emeritus of ABM and member of the Museum’s International Advisory Council, as well as a life-long antique boat enthusiast who founded the Chippewa Bay Maritime Museum.
The Hall of Fame will have a permanent home as a virtual exhibit in ABM’s Haxall Building. To learn more, visit abm.org.
