CLAYTON — The Kansas City-based film crew that arrived in the north country last summer to film an episode of “Mahogany & Chrome” has created a shining beacon about the culture of antique, wooden boats in the Thousand Islands.

The film crew of the nearly hourlong, expertly produced film, “If These Planks Could Talk: Antique Power Boats of the Mighty St. Lawrence,” spent almost a week in the area, interviewing a variety of sources, from a boat broker to a boat restorer.
