IceBoats On Display!
Hey Folks- The East End Maritime Festival is on the way in Greenport, NY, Sept. 23-25.
Mike Acebo and Ralph Hilbert have checked in and tell us that there will be several ice boats set up for display.
According to Ralph they usually have a few DN’s, J14’s, Skimmers plus some old antique stern steerers. Hopefully this year a bubble boat will make an appearance as well as the famous stern steerer Cold Wave.
Also on display are lots of wooden boats built by local Long Island craftsman.
Entire down town Greenport is loaded with arts and craft vendors as well as local beers. This festival attracts 7,000 to 10,000 visitors every year!
Great time is always a guarantee. Head on out and take a look!
Mike Acebo is the ice boat coordinator for the event. If someone from NEIYA would like to display something unique or volunteer a bubble boat, he’s the contact guy. Give him a shout-
