Interlux Yacht Finishes and Awlgrip North America are sponsoring a special field trip during the American Boat Builders & Repairers Association's first Summer Symposium Networking & Social Event, scheduled for Aug. 3-4 in Newport, R.I.

The field trip offers attendees private tours of three major New England boatbuilding and repair facilities: Hinckley Yacht Services, Newport Shipyard and Conanicut Marine Services.

"We are honored to have Interlux and Awlgrip sponsor the field trip since their products are widely used among our audience. It's a nice match," ABBRA president Doug Domenie said in a statement.

Interlux and Awlgrip join Professional Boatbuilder magazine and Starkweather & Shepley insurance as the event sponsors.

The Summer Symposium will feature keynote presentations, panel sessions and networking opportunities geared towards the interests of the boatbuilding and repair industry.
