Congratulations to the 2022 Boat Show winners!

The return of the Annual Wooden Boat Show was a success in more ways than one. The weather was perfect, we welcomed one of our largest crowds and showcased an array of truly gorgeous boats. The judges certainly had a time narrowing down the field, ultimately selecting Scorpio, built by John Worcester at the museum’s Harvey W. Smith Watercraft Center as Best in Show. The people, captains and kids also had a say. Here are this year’s winners:
