    If you are at all intersted in wooden fishing boats; skiffs, prams, dories, kayaks etc, this is the event for you. Each year at this festival small fishing boats are on display, most of them regional designs that were home built by amateurs. If you have a wooden drift boat this might be a good year to show it off as some of the locals are planning on bringing theirs. Some of you have built prams, skiffs, etc, all would be welcome at the show. See the above link for festival info. Come, learn, share. Maybe we'll even go wet a line!

    Bob- Do they charge to get into the festival? I haven't been to it for a number of years but it is usually great.

    Larry, yes there is a gate fee. Its about ten to fifteen dollars I think. Well worth it.
