  • Description

    THE NATIONAL BOAT SHOW, WHICH OPENED TODAY (SATURDAY) IN NEW YORK'S COLISEUM, BRINGS MANY INNOVATIONS FOR THE DEVOTEES OF SUN AND SAILING. THE 58TH SHOW IN THE SERIES LASTS FOR NINE DAYS AND SURPASSES PREVIOUS EXHIBITIONS IN ITS RANGE OF BOATS, MOTORS AND NAUTICAL ACCESSORIES.

    AMONG THE MANY INNOVATIONS ARE A MINI-HOVERCRAFT; A DEVELOPMENT OF FIBREGLASS HULLS WHICH GIVES THEM A STAINED WOOD APPEARANCE, AND IMPROVED PLASTIC PROPELLERS WHICH HAVE STRENGTH EQUAL TO STEEL.

    ONE OF THE PROBLEMS FOR THE ORGANISERS WAS FITTING IN THE VAST NUMBER OF EXHIBITS AND CATERING FOR THE INCREASING POPULARITY OF LARGER YACHTS AND CABIN CRUISERS.
