The 10th annual Maine Boats, Homes and Harbors Show is set to take place this weekend in Rockland, Maine.

Exhibitors at the coastal lifestyle show, which will be held from Friday through Sunday, represent a cross-section of specialties ranging from boatbuilding and marine services to furniture crafters, according to the show producers.

Organizers said the 5-acre show site could be described as having microclimates: One moment attendees are immersed in the maritime world, the next in domestic comforts.

Maine boatbuilders will display products ranging from rowing shells and wooden sea kayaks to runabouts, yachts and cruisers.
