New Hampshire Boat Museum To Host 45th Annual Alton Bay Boat Show
WOLFEBORO On Sat., August 13 from 9 a.m. 12 p.m., the New Hampshire Boat Museum will host the 45th annual Alton Bay Boat Show at the Alton Town Docks. The popular event, which draws visitors from across New England, features antique wooden or early classic fiberglass boats up to 1975.
This is an opportunity to see vintage boats you rarely see up close, said NHBM Executive Director Martha Cummings.
Docking is first-come, first-served, as pre-registration is not required. Spectators are also encouraged to attend and vote for their favorite boat.
Votes decide first, second, and third place, so the show is fun for spectators of any age, added Cummings. The boats that show up at the show are classics, and there are always surprises.
Part of Altons Old Home Day festivities, NHBMs 45th Annual Alton Bay Boat Show is sponsored by Gilford Home Center, GWM Finish Carpentry, Naswa, and Tiki Hut Boats of NH.
Founded in 1992 by antique and classic boating enthusiasts, NHBM is committed to inspire people of all ages with an understanding of, and appreciation for, the boating heritage of New Hampshires fresh waterways. To learn more about NHBM, or the show, visit nhbm.org.

Insider Tips For Navigating The Show
Wear the right shoes: Choose a pair that is easy to slip off and on so you can easily remove shoes when boarding boats. Also choose a pair that is comfortable. With loads of docks to navigate, this probably isnt the best place to wear heels. If its cold or rainy, wear rain boots.
Bring your phone, notepad, pens, boat cards, and business cards to share and save information. Serious buyers should make appointments with the boat brokers.
Dress in layers: Spring on the Chesapeake can be a fickle thing, and its not uncommon to wear shorts one day and yearn for winter gloves the next. Best to dress in layers so youre comfortable no matter what the day brings.
Bring cash: Many vendors will accept your credit card, but cash is easiest for small purchases, and you dont want to waste time waiting in line at the ATM.
