Shilshole Bay Boat Show anchors up this week

The Seattle Boat Show produced by the Northwest Marine Trade Association at Shilshole Bay Marina is Aug. 12-15, and will feature more than 150 new and pre-owned boats ranging from 14 to 74 feet in length.

Other on-water activities include free 90-minute sailboat rides, free stand up paddleboard lessons and thrilling wakeboard demonstrations from the region’s top riders.

Stand up paddle boarding is gaining a lot of interest and Northwest Paddle Surfers will be offering free demonstrations and lessons. After five minutes of onshore instruction, paddlers will take to the water with an instructor and get to try it for themselves on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Show hours: Thursday and Friday, noon-8 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m.-8 p.m.; and Sunday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Cost is $10 adults, and $5 children ages 11-17.

For details go to the Seattle Boat Show web site, and receive a free cup of clam chowder at Ray’s CafĂ© on Shilshole, plus a $15 off coupon from West Marine.
