We've heard about the Georgetown Wooden Boat Show for a number of years now, but we've never had the opportunity up until this year. By coincidence we had planned a little morning adventure with Rover Boat Tours out to North Island in the Thomas Yawkey Preserve in Winyah Bay. When we got back into Georgetown, we decided that we might as well take a cruise around town at the festival. We were soooo happy that we did! We've never seen such incredible wooden boats, so many of them hand made. We really regret not having spent the entire day there, especially since the weather was so fabulous! We'll be planning for next year!
By the way...if you've never been to a wooden boat show, there's still time this year and you won't have to go far! The Southport Wooden Boat Show will be taking place on Yacht Basin in Southport on Saturday, November 6th from 10 AM to 4 PM. We will also once again be one of the vendors for this event so we'd love to have you stop by and visit with us!
Here is a slide show of just a handful of the boats on display at the show, including many of the shrimpers docked at the marina. Enjoy!
