TOPIC: Eastern N.C. Antique Boat Show

Eastern N.C. Antique Boat Show 4 years 10 months ago #74668

Cape Fear Community College in Wilmington, N.C. is hosting an antique boat show on Saturday April 20th, 2013 from 9:30 A.M. to
4:30P.M. at their downtown college right near the Cape Fear River.

This boat show was previously mainly for the antique wood boats, but this year antique fiberglass boats will be included. Members of the East Coast Glasspar Owners Association will be in attendance at this event. My Wife and I plan on displaying our 1960 Glasspar G-3 Skiboat.

Here is a link for the event for any members that may be interested:

This past weekend (Saturday April 20th) members from our "East Coast Glasspar Owners Association" attended the "Cape Fear Community College Antique Boat Show."

My Wife and I entered our 1960 Glasspar G-3 Skiboat in the event.
Although the day started out with rain, around 9:30 A.M. the rain stopped but it remained cloudy and cool most of the day. The weather definitely hurt attendance from prior years, but there was still about twenty (20) boats on display.

The following pictures were taken at the event.
