Boats on the Beach at Matapeake

Sun, breeze, and lots of boats to enjoy on the water at Matapeake. There were more than a hundred wooden boats on the beach.

OkoumeFest Saturday marked the public debut of the new Southwester Dory, which didn't have an idle moment all day long.

The Southwester Dory was clearly one of the hits of the show.

Exciting, but surprisingly docile to handle and comfortable, the Outrigger Junior has enjoyed a long and careful development and is just now transitioning into full production.

The Eastport Pram was popular, both for solo sailors and families.

As usual, the Skerry was kept busy giving rides all day.

Family Fun!

Everyone, including the kids, had fun.

As in years past, kids could build their own model boat, always very popular!
