About HCBOA

HCBOA is Louisville Boating. It was founded in February 1980 as a social club for Louisville boating. We meet the 2nd Tuesday of each month at designated restaurants / clubs around Harrods Creek and the Ohio River.
During the spring, summer, and fall we get together and take boating trips up or down the river; such as 6 Mile Island, 12 Mile Island, Grassy Flats, 18 Mile Island and Westport, to name a few. Occasionally a trip to Cincinnati, OH or Madison, IN by boat. Some of the well known events and Fun-raisers are the “Poker Run”, “Summer Party”, and “Dingy Run”
During the colder months, we organize events at one of our favorite hangouts on or around the water.
We also raise funds for charities in the Louisville area, helping those who can not help themselves.
