The public boat show is Saturday, September 10 at the River Street Marina on the Black River between the 7th and 10th Street bridges. Again this year free antique boat rides will be offered from 11 am to 2 pm. This has been done for the last two years and has proved to be very popular with the public.
The feature boat for this year's show is the Chris Craft Commander. These are a range of fiberglass boats, mostly cruisers made by Chris Craft. The 38' Commander Express Cruiser was the pivotal boat in the development of fiberglass technology by Chris Craft. It was the first of all fiberglass cruisers made by Chris Craft. Its production bridged the gap from the past to the future. It proved to be a tremendous success for Chris Craft resulting in the production of subsequent sedan and sport fisherman models. Ultimately, many different models of Commanders were built some as small as 19' but most were cruisers all the way up to 47'.
