This Friday,Saturday and Sunday is the Maine Boat builders show. This is always a show that I enjoy going to, you won't find any of he big flashy boats here but you will find honest to goodness craftsmen built boats. One of the provisos that the organizers place on the exhibitors is that the builders must man the booth so this means that as you look a round the show you will be talking to someone that probably the day before was wielding a brush putting on the last coat of varnish before trailing the boat to the show.
One of the regular exhibitors is Richard Pulsifer builder of the Pulsifer Hampton, a hansom boat if ever there was and one that always draws admiring crowds at the show, a trio of which make a nice showing at rest in the picture above.
I am writing this rather late at night so this posting is rather short but tomorrow I will post some photos and even perhaps some video providing I can work out how to make that aspect happen, but rest assured I shall do my very best to bring you some flavor of the show.
