Boat the Blue 2020

After one year hiatus the boat show is back in Port Huron. After a very successful ACBS International Boat Show in Port Huron in 2018 the planning group decided to make the annual show in Port Huron a biennial show. It was felt that doing it every other year would allow a better show to be staged. When you see what is planned we think you will agree it was the right move.

This year’s theme is highlighting the craftsmanship of the boat restoration and boat building artisans. Craftsmen from all over the region will be demonstrating their work along with offering opportunities for the pubic to get involved in elements of the restoration process.

For the registered boaters, the show starts early Friday morning with a shoot in Lake Huron just upstream of the Blue water Bridge. Later that morning, there will be a cruise down to St Clair and bussed to the newly renovated St Clair Inn for brunch. Friday will end with dinner on the Vintage roof top.

On Saturday, show day of course, we will be offering free boat rides to the general public. This activity was pioneered in Port Huron a number of years ago. It proved wildly popular for Boat the Blue in 2018 with over 700 rides given. The Boat Show wraps up on Saturday with an After Glow party for registrants in the Pavilion.

This will be a judged show in order to attract as many restorers as possible. Also, restorers that do register will be given the opportunity to show off their recent projects and will also receive other inducements.

It should be a great show, we hope you can make it!
