Cape Fear Community College’s Marine Technology department will hold its 17th annual Boat Show on April 2 from 9:30 a.m.– 4:30 p.m. on the Wilmington riverfront (Water Street between the Hilton Riverside Hotel and the Coastline Convention Center). The event showcases the art of boat building, featuring the work of CFCC boat building students and local craftsman. A variety of wooden and fiberglass boats will be displayed along the riverfront, as well as in the water. All proceeds from the boat show support scholarships for CFCC’s boat building students.
The show will include a live boat building demonstration by Atlantic Veneer, ten judging categories plus special Simmons Sea Skiff awards, and a knot-tying challenge. CFCC’s 135 foot research vessel, the Cape Hatteras, will be open for tours.
