    Default 2018 Maine BoatBuilder’s Show and EBS

    So the MBBS is coming right up - March 23rd to 25th.

    http://www.portlandcompany.com/boatshow/


    As usual we will be hosting an Elbow Bending Sympoium on Saturday night after the Show. We’ll provide dinner, feel free to bring something to drink or maybe a starter or dessert.

    Rumor has it there will be a few honored WBForum guests coming from out of town.

    The Show isn’t in the old Portland Company industrial buildings anymore but the new location is actually more comfortable and easier for the exhibitors.

    PM me for directions to our house. Hope to see you here.

    I’ll put up the Seminar listings when they become available.

    I'll be there on the Saturday as long as the weather is OK. I'd like to see the Arabella guys talk but I guess I'll see their table.

    Me too. I'll be manning the TSCA/MSCC table. We will be announcing and promoting the Maine Small Craft Celebration at the show. It will be a fall boat show focusing on small boats (surprise) to be held downtown Portland. Stop by and see what it's about.

    I can swing some free passes if you're willing to sit for a bit!

    As far as I know so far, I'll be manning the Traditional Small Craft Association booth Saturday morning. Come by and say hi!

    Hear about initial plans for the Maine Small Craft Celebration (MSSC):

    Sharing the Joy of Small Boats

    September 22-23, 2018

 at

    Portland Yacht Services, Inc.

    100 West Commercial Street
    
58 Fore Street

    Portland, ME 04101

    The inaugural Maine Small Craft Celebration will be a 2 day event held on the shores of the Fore River in South Portland. Occurring over the autumnal equinox the MSCC will provide participants an opportunity to celebrate the end of a boating season and to start dreaming and planning for next year’s boat, upgrade or adventure.

    Exhibitors will have small boats, sail, oar and power, on display on the water and on land. Demonstrations, workshops, and lectures will be given throughout the event focusing on building, maintaining and safely operating small boats.

    The most unique feature will be on the water where visitors can “Try it-Like it.” Designers and builders will be there to discuss and demonstrate the features of their boats. Visitors will be able to take them for a test “drive” after learning the particulars about that craft.

    Also on the water there will be boat races, easily viewed from shore, demonstrations on rigging and rowing techniques, and boat tours of Portland harbor. Back on land there will be an exhibitors area where maritime businesses and organizations will be able to show their wares, discuss their programs, and interact with the public. A juried boat contest, a nautical flea market and a children’s marine craft area will be among the other events scheduled. A celebration would not be complete without food and entertainment so there will be music, local food and craft beer available throughout the weekend.

    If you have a business or organization that would like to participate in this celebration please contact info@smallcraftcelebration.com for more information

    What is worse than WB not coming is that there really are very few actual boatbuilders coming.

    The MBBS is perhaps unintentionally pricing out the actual crafty boatbuilders and their smaller suppliers and it's turning into more like a mass market show. I don't know if the economics will allow for any strategies to reverse that trend. But this way, it's going to be a pale immitation of the Boston show.

    We're hoping that the fall MSCC will be buck that trend with a focus on small boats, builders, designers and an emphasis on keeping costs down and the fun factor up.

    I won’t be able to make it this year. Didn’t have any long PWM layovers available. I will be checking out the Long Island Maritime Museum later this week (weather permitting, sheesh it’s SPRING tomorrow people!). I’ll be getting my catboat fix satisfied.

    I’ve long wanted to visit the LIMaritime Museum. You’d think a guy from Garden City might have made it there by now.

    Hi, Steven. Just saw this - Meg and I will try to make it down on Saturday from Bath. I see there's a Maine Maritime Museum presentation on the rebuilding of Mary E, which was originally built in Bath in 1906. We're all excited about Mary E - she'll be a permanent part of the Museum fleet and will be crewed by the tour boat staff (M/V Merrymeeting), which I'm a part of. Fun summer awaits! -Ben

    I just five minutes ago saw some great pictures of Mary E on Facebook. Wow, she’s coming along nicely!
