Locally made boat on display at annual show

  #

While the modern, fiberglass boats will likely draw much of the attention at the annual Grand Rapids Boat Show, a classic-style wooden boat from Holland is certain to catch some attention.

A hand-made wooden boat built by Grand Craft in Holland will be displayed in the lobby of DeVos Place in Grand Rapids. The 20-foot Grand Sport will be one of the few wooden boats among the more than 300 boats at the show which continues today and runs through Sunday.

"We feel it will appeal to a great number of the people who will be attending the show," said Bill Hogan, Grand Craft vice president.

In addition to the Grand Craft wooden boat, three others from Lakeland Boat Works in Middleville will be on display at the show.   more...

Midwest fly expo to move

  #
For 25 years it was simply called “The Southfield Show,” but all that’s changing this year. The 27th annual Midwest Fly Fishing Expo will be held at the Macomb Community College Expo Center instead of in Southfield. The dates are Saturday, March 13, from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m., and on Sunday, March 14, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. The site at Macomb Community College offers more than 2,300 parking spaces and has over 61,000 square feet of floor space, according to the Michigan Fly Fishing Club, which sponsors the event. That means more parking, and more exhibitors. The cost is $10. The group maintains an excellent Web site with show information. It’s www.mffc.org

Boat races return to Algonac in June

  #

Photo

ALGONAC -- More than 70 years ago, the North Channel separating Harsens Island from the Algonac-Clay Township mainland was popular for record-setting, high-powered speed boats.

Work is under way on the latest round of high-speed history, as the community readies for offshore racing in June.

The Great Lakes Silver Series, the same racing circuit that visits St. Clair each year, will open its season in Algonac with a three-day racing weekend, June 4, 5 and 6, called the North Channel Offshore Challenge 2004.

Keith Churill, president of the North Channel Offshore Racing Association, which is organizing the event, said planning is on schedule.

"A lot of history was made in the 1930s with Gar Wood and the world speed record," he said. "Here we are 70 years later, we're bringing it back."

Detroit show helps boaters shake blahs

  #

Doors open Saturday in Detroit for what many local water enthusiasts said is the greatest boat show in Michigan.

The 46th annual Detroit Boat Show at Cobo Center this year is featuring more than 2,000 boats spread out over 500,000 square feet of show space.

Hundreds of marinas, boat dealers and accessory vendors will tout their merchandise, hoping to catch the eye of some of the 80,000 people expected at the weeklong show.

A few area businesses will set up shop in Detroit thanks to the volume of people expected this year.

"It's the largest amount of people you're going to get in boating in one location," said Michelle Soultaire, office manager at the Algonac Harbour Club, which will set up an exhibit.

The show differs from events such as Detroit's North American International Auto Show, where people might not be attending to buy, she said. Boat show visitors are there to shop.   more...
