19th Port Credit Show Set for August


The annual Port Credit In-Water Boat Show will be held August 28 to 30, 2009 at the Port Credit Harbour Marina, Port Credit, ON.

In its 19th year and hosted by locally-based The Store Mason's Chandlery, this year's event is scheduled to showcase an array of new and used in-water boat displays plus a wide selection of various land-based exhibitors concentrating on marine equipment and supplies, insurance, finance, charters, and sail makers. The Canadian Coast Guard will also have a display onsite.

Once again, the event is presenting its Speakers Tent featuring an array of boating seminars hosted by Rob MacLeod from InformedBoater.com. The recently introduced Consignment Tent will also be back this year, which encourages boaters to bring all their old boat gear to sell on consignment. Forty percent of the proceeds are donated to the Junior Sailing programs.

“This is a boat show for boaters put on by boaters,” said Lori Mason owner of The Store Mason's Chandlery and founder of the Port Credit In-water Boat Show. “We bring everyone together from the boating community. The attendees tell us they have a great time meeting new and old friends, buying boats and marine products, and simply having fun 'messin' about in boats.'”
