WoodenBoat Show

More than 100 wooden boats -- from 80-foot yachts to a 15-foot working skiff -- are on display in the water and on land this weekend when the WoodenBoat Show returns to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels. Sponsored by WoodenBoat Magazine of Brooklin, Maine, this year's show focuses on boats from the Chesapeake Bay region. The skipjack H.M. Krentz, the schooner Imagine, and the museum's buyboat Mister Jim offer short Bay excursions, and suppliers to the wooden-boat market exhibit paint, varnish, tools, hardware, sails, oars, boat building kits and plans. Also returning this year is the family boat-building competition -- 75 families are scheduled to build and launch boats during the three-day event. And shoppers can find nautical antiques, books, boat attire, decoys and ship models.

The show site is on Mill Street. Hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. tomorrow through Sunday. Admission is $10, $5 age 6-17. Call 207-359-4651 or 410-745-2916.
