2008 Plymouth Boat Show

Went down east this morning to get my fix of wooden boats. Some of the entries were there last year, but there were some new ones. I got a chance to see a Melonseed Skiff, a boat I was interested in. Here's some pics from the show.

This is the Melonseed.

In my opinion, the prettiest boat at the show.

"Coastie", a radio-controlled USCG road boat that was a hit with the kids.

The CSS Albemarle, a Confederate ironclad (actually, a replica). This boat is part of the Port of Plymouth museum.

There's also a branch (albeit in its infancy) of the NC Maritime Museum in Plymouth.

For additional pictures go to
my Picasa site.

Next year, I'm going to enter a boat.
