Wooden boats of all makes and sizes will be on display at the Old Yacht Basin in Southport during the third annual Southport Wooden Boat Show from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29. Admission is free.
Visitors can meet and talk with the wooden boat makers and owners and vote for their favorite entrant for the People’s Choice Award. The nauti-kids events return and all little sailors can build their own boats and test their sea-worthiness. Face painting, tattoos, knot-tying skills return and, new this year, the Turtle Man, will keep them busy.
A new event will be the Seafood Chowder Cook-off. See more boats, both in and out of the water; more nautical/maritime arts and crafts; nautical & maritime demonstrations along the waterfront; a special boat building demonstration; a model and RC boat exhibit at the N.C. Maritime Museum at Southport; new collector’s poster and T-shirt designed exclusively for the show; raffles for special prizes, and entertainment, food and boat rides.
The Southport Wooden Boat Show, in conjunction with Downtown Southport, Inc., are event sponsors. Contact Jeanne Crabtree at 457-5223 or Bert Felton at 457-5302 or visit its website at www.southportwoodenboatshow.com.
