– What are the selection criteria?
Good, interesting boats with a classic sensibility in a broad sense. Two of our founders, Maynard Bray and Ben Mendlowitz, have been educating themselves – and the world – on all things wooden boat for most of their lives. We’re also boatbuilders, camp cruisers, rowers, liveaboards. We like good boats more than exclusivity.
– How many boats are in the Show?
TBD, they’re still comin’ in like hotcakes. The 2021 Show featured over 900 boats.
– How many countries are represented?
Also TBD/growing… over 65 at the moment.
– Can I add my own boat to the Show?
Yes, subject to review by our crew. Boat pages are created by owners, and you can CLICK HERE to create your own. We will only publish boat pages featuring several great photos and thorough descriptions.
– I know a great classic boating organization, but it’s not on the map. Can I add it?
Yes, please do! You can CLICK HERE to create a new organization page. Employees of the organization will be able to “take over” the page and edit it down the road if they choose.
– Will there be helpful workshops for wooden boat owners?
There will be 7 presentations this year, one a day from Saturday, 2/19 – Saturday, 2/26. We are not focusing on how-to workshops – we have the whole Off Center Harbor site plus the scores of schools and clubs on the Show map for that. The talks will be enlightening looks at different parts of the classic boat world, from a look at the greatest yacht designers of the past to a young Australian adventurer with classic sensibilities.
