Organizers of the 13th annual Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors Show invite Boston Whaler owners from near and far to trailer their Whalers to Rockland for a rendezvous during the show, which runs Aug. 14-16.
Owners who exhibit their craft, new or vintage, spiffy or well-loved, at this annual gathering of fine Maine craftsmen will receive four weekend passes and a one-year subscription to Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors magazine.
“Boston Whalers aren’t just boats,” said show promoter (and owner of a classic 1972 Whaler) John Hanson. “They are iconic New England boats. They represent Maine, and boating, and fun on the water. They are a part of our families. This will be a huge, fun gathering.”
That fun will include the first-ever Whaler Tales party, a pig roast and music fest on Saturday evening (vegetarian options available). Carnivores and herbivores alike can sample local beers crafted by Rock Harbor Brewery while they sit back and enjoy live jazz and funk and “talk Whaler.” Party tickets are $25 per person and should be reserved in advance at www.maineboats.com/boatshow/bostonwhaler.
