Sandpoint Boat Show motoring into town

Area residents will have a chance to see classic beauties like the Aphrodite, up close as the annual Sandpoint Boat Show sails into town July 14-16. As in past years, dozens of wooden boats line the Sandpoint marina and Sandpoint Boardwalk. The boats will begin docking Friday, with a boat show and parade set for Saturday. Boaters will spend Sunday exploring the lake. In addition, the boat show features a kids' boat-building program, giving young mariners all the materials needed to build their wooden boats — albeit using a wooden boat-shaped block. They can even test their craft's seaworthiness — once all of the construction and decorations are completed.
