The Wooden Boat Show 2016: Wooden Boat Paradise


The JD/ TotalBoat team had a great experience at this past weekend’s Wooden Boat Show in Mystic, CT. Many of our customers would say the same, as a handful won some of the most prestigious awards handed out at the annual show.  Congrats to LMI and East Passage Boatwrights for their work on Santana which was entered in the Concours d’Elegance and won Best in Show in the Sailboat Professionally Maintained category. Arey’s Pond Boat Yard Won the Concours d’Elegance for Best in Show in the Sailboat Professionally Maintained category (maintained by Arey’s Pond Boat Yard of course). And MP & G won with their amazing Buzzard’s Bay restoration of Mink, complete with period (1914!) pieces like a PFD, horns and anchor, sails and even hemp rope!

What an amazing honor and some seriously beautiful work being done by these great customers. Other customers stopped into the booth, raving about LUST varnish, Wet Edge Topside paint and the 5:1 Epoxy. We answered questions, gave out samples and some TB Truckers hats and were basically thrilled to meet and hear about everyone’s projects. and it seems everyone is in the middle of a boat project – always!

Thanks to all who came and said hi, took a sample, is going to try something new from TotalBoat and thanks for all the feedback. Lots of people who are very appreciative of the JD Customer commitment and the tech help we offer. We work hard to make your tough jobs go smoothly and we want our products and our support to be where you turn when you need to get your boating projects done!

Here are some fun pics from the show. Enjoy!
