Wildwoods Boat Show and Fishing Expo

THE WILDWOODS, N.J. - Get ready for fishing season at the second annual Wildwoods Boat Show and Fishing Expo, April 1 to 3, 2005, at the Wildwoods Convention Center. The show is sponsored by the Greater Wildwood Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with a committee of local boat dealers, including Pier 47, McKee Yacht Sales at Schooner Island Marina, and B&E Marine.

The Convention Center, at Burk Avenue and the Boardwalk in Wildwood, N.J., will be filled with boats and personal watercraft by major national manufacturers. Dealers will be on hand representing Four Winns, Grady-White, Honda, Kawasaki, Rampage, Seacraft, Sea Pro, Sea Ray, Sugar Sand Jet Boats, Suzuki, Triumph, World Class Catamarans and Yamaha. Outside the Convention Center will be a Used Boat Marketplace, where boat owners will display their vessels for sale.

New this year is the Fishing Expo, with vendors displaying and selling the latest fishing tackle, rods, reels and accessories. Antique lures and fishing tackle will also be on display. Bring in your own vintage lures and have them appraised by collector/appraiser/preserver Ralph Palmer. Fishing seminars by Captain Gerry Zagorski, co-host of the NJ Fishing show on CN8, and boating safety classes are scheduled, as well as activities for kids.

Tickets to the Boat Show are $6 for adults, $4 for children ages 12-18, and free for kids under 12. Show hours are 1pm to 8pm on Friday, April 1; 10am to 8pm on Saturday, April 2; and 10am to 5pm on Sunday, April 3.

The show will again include an outdoor Used Boat Marketplace. Boat owners can reserve space to display their boats for sale all weekend at the Convention Center.

Last year, more than 100 boats and personal watercraft by national manufacturers were exhibited inside the convention center, including Excalibur, Four Winns, Grady White, McKee Craft, Rampage, SeaCraft, Sea Pro, Triumph, World Class Catamarans and Yamaha.

Organizer Andrew Cripps of the Greater Wildwood Chamber of Commerce says the event’s family-friendly admission pricing and activities for the kids help make the Boat Show and Fishing Expo an enjoyable group experience.

A portion of the proceeds from the 2004 Wildwoods Boat Show is being donated to the Love of Linda Cancer Fund, Volunteers in Medicine of Cape May County (N.J.), the New Jersey Marine Trades Association Scholarship Fund, and the United Way of Cape May County.
