Any Alan Jackson fan could tell you his love of country music is only equaled by his love of boats.  And like his music, Alan has a taste for the old school, wooden boats.  He recently donated a rare wooden boat to the Antique Boat Museum in Clayton. Click to hear the details and see pictures.

Michael J Folsom with the Antique Boat Museum says Alan is a huge wooden boat enthusiast.  The boat is a 1955 29-foot Chris Craft and only 36 were ever made.  Alan bought the boat from a couple who kept it at Lake Chautauqua near Jamestown, New York in 2002.

Alan named the boat “Flat Top” after the acoustic guitar he plays on stage.  The picture below is before Alan’s restoration project.

It wasn’t Alan’s first trip to the boat museum. Folsom says he brought 5 boats to their annual auction in 2009 and cruised the Thousand Islands in his yacht “The Neon Rainbow.”

Wow! In this case we ARE NOT going to need a bigger boat.  Don’t you love it when superstars turn out to be down to earth good-hearted people.  I’ve always said Alan Jackson is the most humble star I have ever met.
