Boat Shows in Big D, RI, Cali and AUS


Are in Dallas, southern New England or southern California this weekend? Or way down under in South Australia? Good news - there's a boat show near you.

Mad Skills in Big D

The Dallas Boat Show actually runs this weekend and next weekend, but not on the days in between. If you have to choose, we recommend you wait until the 2nd weekend and check out the DIY Magazine skills workshop: How to Solve Common Boating Problems.

Win in R.I.
The boat show in Rhode Island is actually a Trawler Fest, being held for the first time in Warwick at Brewer Greenwich Bay Marina. If you go, look for our editor wearing a FirstBoat hat... say "hello" and win one just like it. On the spot. Until he runs out.

Going Back to Cali
Somewhere on the California coast between Malibu and Santa Barbara is a town named Oxnard, which is home to a marina called Channel Islands Harbor. Sounds like a beautiful place to visit any time of year, but if you go there this weekend, you'll find the Ventura County Boat Show. And if you go to today or tomorrow (Thurs or Fri), admission is a buck or less. More info.

For info about all of this weekend's boating events, including the Mystic River Mudhead Benefit Cup regatta, the boat show down under, and the Phuket Multihull Championship, visit our boat show calendar.
