Free Kid’s Boat Building
Of course, the big draw for boaters in the area is seeing what’s new in boat lines, technology, accessories and gear. Manufacturers, dealers and retailers will be bringing in their latest designs for introduction to the public. Expect plenty of new boat lines, brands and displays this year, and see what’s new from a wide range of manufacturers and dealers.
For more than 52 years the Portland Boat Show has been one of the biggest – all indoor – boat shows in the Northwest and the largest show of its kind in Oregon. Each year the show looks for the most eye-catching features, the newest boat designs and lines and provides a wealth of boating choices for all boating fans.
Returning this year is kid’s boat building! For more than 10 years, thousands and thousands of kids have had their first chance to build a wood boat to take home – for free! Schooner Creek Boat Works will be manning the area once again. Bring your kids!
