Feather Craft – welcome

August 10th is the 42nd Annual wooden boat show in Hessel Michigan. I have been contacted by the show committee that they will be awarding 1st and 2nd place trophy for aluminum boats this year.

I am trying to get a good showing of aluminum boats this year to show our appreciation. If you ever felt like entering a show this is the one to do it at. We will be camping out at Loons Point campground. Come out and join us for the weekend and the show.

Go to the event listing on the www.feathercraft.net site for details on the show and the campground. Any questions contact me.
