Wooden & Classic Boat Show this weekend

The Cathlamet Wooden & Classic Boat Show returns this Saturday, August 13 at the Elochoman Marina in Cathlamet from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. They are expecting all types of classic craft including those of various construction materials, modes of propulsion, and function, be it boats used for work or pleasure.

A few examples of boats that will be at the show include “Glencannon,” a beautifully restored 26-foot Bartender designed by the late George Calkins specifically for the waters of the Pacific Northwest. Glencannon is the pride and joy of Bo Neill of Portland.

Another boat joining this year is the stunning 16-foot 1954 Grandy runabout just off a two-year keel-up restoration by local resident Julius Dalzell. The Grandy runabout was designed by renowned Pacific Northwest naval architect Edwin Monk, Sr. and was built in the Grandy boat yard in Seattle. This runabout is one of only two remaining in existence.

Another Pacific Northwest classic boat is from the Clipper Craft Boat Company, formerly of Portland. This shining example of Pacific Northwest boat design is owned by local resident Fritz Carmine and is nearing the end of a long and detailed restoration.

In addition to beautiful wooden and classic boats, several vintage marine engines will also be on display. The public is invited to enjoy a fun day on the docks viewing many different classic boats, speaking with their proud owners, and learning about their histories.
