Maritime Heritage on Display
CFCC’s annual Riverfront Boat Show will be held on April 1.
Cape Fear Community College (CFCC) is excited to announce that its annual Riverfront Boat Show will be held on Saturday, April 1 on the Cape Fear riverfront on Water Street, between the Hotel Ballast and Coastline Convention Center.
The show will showcase the art of boat building, featuring the work of CFCC boatbuilding students and local artisans. Various wood and fiberglass boats will be displayed along the riverfront in and out of the water.
“The annual boat show provides an opportunity for our students to engage with and learn from experienced boat builders and for the public and students to showcase their talents,” says Jay Rogers, Marine Technology Department Chair. “In addition, the show promotes the preservation of traditional craftsmanship and inspires the next generation to become stewards of our maritime heritage.”
Other show highlights include dock space on the Cape Fear River (trailer spaces also available), 16 judging categories and a knot-tying challenge.
