January 27, 1995|By Holton F. Brown


The 41st annual Chesapeake Bay Boat Show will be harboring dreams and a whole lot of the latest hardware -- from six-figure luxury craft to little niceties -- at the Baltimore Convention Center starting tomorrow.

A promotional gimmick sets the tone at 1 p.m. tomorrow -- promoter Henry Brehm will walk across the Inner Harbor in the vicinity of Harborplace, using flotation devices attached to his feet. The Convention Center's doors open at 11 a.m. tomorrow.

Other attractions include a fully restored 1964 Amphicar, which can function as transportation on land or water. The car will be on exhibit at the Convention Center's Pratt Street entrance. Free fishing workshops will feature Bass Master Tommy Biffle tomorrow and Capt. Richard Novotny of the Maryland Saltwater Sportsmen's Society, tomorrow and Sunday.

The show will be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. tomorrow and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Admission: $7 for adults, $3 for children 6 to 12.


The USS Antrim, a Navy guided-missile frigate, is scheduled to visit Baltimore, docking at 5 p.m. Wednesday at the Broadway Pier in Fells Point. The 445-foot vessel will be open to the public from noon to 4 p.m. Thursday. The ship, stopping at Baltimore for a goodwill visit, has many Baltimoreans among its crew. The frigate will depart at 9 a.m. Feb. 4.


The number of things to do Around the Inner Harbor is picking up:

* Competitive ice-sculpting with members of the National Ice Carvers Association begins at 10:30 a.m. tomorrow at Harborplace Amphitheatre. Four two-man teams will be trying to get neat, photographable figures out of 3.5 tons of block ice, using saws, chisels, carving tools and other equipment. Judging will be held at 3:30 p.m.

* Learn all you can about sharks from one of the world's experts, Dr. Eugenie Clark, a shark researcher and biologist retired from the University of Maryland College Park. She will speak at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow at the National Aquarium. Admission is $12 for members and $20 for others. Ticket information: 727-FISH.

* Black History Month, which runs through February, has a venue all month at the Top of the World Observation Level and Museum in the World Trade Center. An exhibition of drawings depicting Americans in black history by local artist Bill Strong, known for his stippling (dots) technique, can be seen Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and from noon to 5 p.m. Sundays in February. And you can peruse a rare collection of African-American memorabilia presented by Nanny Jack & Co.
