The Show was initially created by Off Center Harbor in Brooklin, Maine in the U.S. Off Center Harbor (OCH) is the leading video website for wooden and classic boats. Now that the Show has opened its virtual doors, the classic boating community is also helping fill in any gaps in the listings for the Show.
When we were traveling in New Zealand and Tasmania in 2019, we noticed the dramatic difference that live shows and festivals make in the condition of wooden boats of a region, not to mention the energy and money that goes into them in preparation for the shows, and of course the warm community that is created around them.
In short, we believe the live shows and festivals are the lifeblood of what we all do.
So our primary motivation in creating this online show is to use our unique worldwide reach and audience to do everything we can to keep the buzz going for the wooden boat communities that mean so much to us, during the pandemic and beyond.
