Tino Mastry will have a hands on diesel class with an engine and tools. A vessel's critical systems will be explained by Steve D'Antonio. Classes are limited so you should check online soon.
During the show there will be several dockside demonstrations. In the parking lot there will also be booths selling everything from insurance to anchors. The general admission is $15.00. The attitude at this show is relaxed and you are welcomed aboard all the boats. Here you can actually get aboard some affordable boats for real people. See you there!
