Muskoka boat builders like Ditchburn, Minett, Greavette, and others became famous for their beautiful, handcrafted vessels, many of them finished in gleaming mahogany. These boats are now prized by their owners, many of whom display them at the annual Antique and Classic Boat Show in Gravenhurst in July, where this photo was taken.

Watch some of these classics perform at the 2011 show.
