In June many people’s fancy turns to thoughts of the WoodenBoat Show at Mystic Seaport. Well, get ready – it will be back June 25-27.
For wooden boat aficionados (or not) – this show lives up to its billing as “the most dynamic wooden boat show in the country” by WoodenBoat Magazine. As many of today’s boats are now made of fiberglass, these wooden boats are in a beautifully different category of their own. The owners’ pride shines as bright as the finish on their boats, and many are delighted to have visitors board their prize possessions.
The 19th annual WoodenBoat Show features both contemporary and classic boats of every class – power, sail, oar and paddle. Also on tap are workshops where you can learn some tips and skills on building and/or preserving wooden boats.
Under the tent, vendors of all things nautical will entice you with unique gifts or boaters’ necessities that you’d be hard-put to find in your average store.
As a car dealer would say, this is a “cream puff” of a show. Mark your calendar now:
