For those interested in wooden boats, boat building, or the anything to do with the water and a little spare time on October 20, 2012, a visit to the 23rd Annual Wooden Boat Show in Georgetown, SC is a worthwhile excursion. The show runs from 11am to 6pm and is a fundraiser for the South Carolina Maritime Museum.
This year’s show will feature one of the nation’s best wooden boat exhibits with more than 100 classic wooden boats, a wooden boat building competition, children’s model boat building, knot tying, maritime art and crafts, food, and music. A special attraction will be the wooden boat challenge, which involves teams of two racing to build rowing skiffs within a 4 hour time limit and then testing the boats for seaworthiness in a rowing relay on the Sampit River.
