The 12th biennial Woods Hole Historical Museum’s Model Boat Show will be held on Patriot’s Day Weekend, April 13 and 14, 2019.
This celebration of small ships is an opportunity to view exquisite workmanship and meet model boat craftsmen from all over New England and beyond. Some of the vessels are so small they can fit inside a light bulb, most are much larger, ranging from 12 in. to 12 ft. Most have fine detail. Some are stationary, exhibited inside; others go into the water. Some are powered only by the wind, yet steered by radio control.
The boats will be exhibited in six buildings ashore, stretched from the Museum’s own building and down the length of Water Street, and in two locations on the water. One of these watery sites is a shallow pool created especially for this weekend, where children are invited to sail models they have built themselves. The other water site is in Eel Pond, where radio-controlled boats will be sailed and raced in easy view from the drawbridge. These events take place almost constantly through the two days of the Show.
