Maine Boatbuilder’s Show Near The Captain Lord Mansion

Maine Boatbuilders Show

The Captain Lord Mansion announces The Maine Boatbuilder’s Show, “a gathering of the finest fiberglass and wooden custom boat builders on the East Coast.  Also exhibiting are numerous manufacturers of boating equipment, sailboats, powerboats, canoes, kayaks, and rowing boats. The actual builders will be there to discuss and sell their work.”  Wooden Boat Magazine has high praise for this show.  Here is link to an exhibitor. The show times for the Maine Boat builders are Friday, March 16: from 10 – 6pm; Saturday, March 17: from 10 – 6pm and Sunday, March 18: from 10 – 4pm. The show is held at the Portland Company Complex, 58 Fore St., Portland, ME 04101.  Pictured here are three dories that were built in Maine and are typical of the superb skills of Maine boat builders.  Although I have no interest in owning a boat at this stage of my life, I certainly appreciate the skill and craftsmanship which goes into these beautiful boats.  Hope to see you at the show.  Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield
