There also will be seminars on such topics as Troubleshooting Your Diesel Engine,” “Modern Navigation” and “Watersports Safety.”

The show will run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on April 17 and 18, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on April 19.

The Annapolis Spring Sailboat Show will be held April 24-26 at City Dock in Annapolis with nearly 80 new and brokerage sailboats for sale, including catamarans, monohulls, racing boats, family cruisers, daysailers and yachts.

Organizers said the show will feature boats in the water and on land, as well as equipment, electronics, clothing, inflatables and boating accessories.
