Annual Wooden Boat Festival
Sponsored by Toms River Seaport Society and Maritime Museum
July 20, 2013 from 9 am to 5 pm
at Huddy Park in Toms River, NJ
2013 Featured Boats:
Thayer IV and Mariah from the Movie "ON GOLDEN POND"
Do you remember the 1981 movie "On Golden Pond" with Henry Fonda and Katherine Hepburn?
Do you remember the family boat, a 1950 22ft Chris Craft, the "Thayer IV", used by both stars,
and the mail boat, "Mariah", a 1963 19ft Raven by Century?
These two wooden boats are our "Double Feature" boats at this years' annual Wooden Boat Festival!
They were found in poor condition a couple of years ago and purchased by Seth Katz of Katz's Marina located on Lake Hopatcong. Mr. Katz completed a magnificent restoration on both boats and has generously agreed to bring them to our Festival. We could not be more excited and we are sure you do not want to miss seeing them!
