Atlantic City Boat Show opens tomorrow

The Progressive Atlantic City Boat Show will get underway on Wednesday and runs through March 4 at the Atlantic City Convention Center.

The show will offer the first New Jersey Career Day on Thursday from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m., inviting New Jersey and Philadelphia high school, college and trade school students to explore a career in the recreational boating industry.

The show will have more than 500 boats, including the “queen” of the show, the Regulator 41.

The show, which is owned and run by the National Marine Manufacturers Association, will feature the new “Touch-a-Boat” tour, allowing kids to climb aboard a variety of boats and talk with captains.

It also offers the Junior Captains Program, a boating skills and safety education program developed by the Annapolis School of Seamanship to teach first-mate line-handling skills such as tying a cleat hitch, throwing a line over a piling and becoming familiar with onboard safety and communication equipment.

A new 20-foot by 30-foot indoor paddle pool will allow Fin-atics Marine to offer trials and demos of standup pedal boards and kayaks.

The U.S. Power Squadron will use a virtual trainer to allow boaters to improve skills in simulated boats, and Fred’s Shed Interactive Learning Center will provide seminars for DIY boaters.
