Welcome to The harrods creek boat owners’ association (HCBOA)

HCBOA is a club for watercraft owners and friends of boating around the Louisville metro area including Indiana.

Announcement: We Are Ready For A Great Summer 2022




HCBOA was founded in February 1980 as a social and boating club. We meet the 2nd Tuesday of each month at designated restaurants / clubs around Harrods Creek or anywhere on the Ohio River.
During the summer we get together, 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. We do this during weekends in the summer. 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.
