    Maine Boatbuilders Show

    This show is the first hint of spring sparking dreams of the upcoming boating season. With an awesome selection of fine boats, this is not your average consumer boat show.

The New England Rough Water Symposium is a chance to see to it that your boat is well and fully complete along with few scratches to prove it. While "rough water" may sound scary, this is a good event for a wide range of paddlers from the novice through experienced paddlers. It will give you a chance to learn from top paddler how to use your boat to full effect.
