The Broken Gunwale Award

Donated by the Finger Lakes Chapter and chosen by the awards committee, this award is given in the spirit of fun and good humor and presented to any individual or group which has “distinguished” themselves in a memorable way while participating in an ACBS cruise or boat show. A perpetual trophy displaying the names of recipients is retained at ACBS Headquarters.  It is awarded only when an appropriate event or incident deserves “commemoration.”

This nomination should be a narrative of the event or situation, dates and location of the event, the participants, along with pictures for documentation.
