PORT ORCHARD — Like refined, elegant royalty taking a respite from their obligations, the wooden boats docked at the Port Orchard Marina for the 29th annual Chris Craft Rendezvous boat show July 12-15 exuded a certain sense of waterborne dignity.

While the exact count wasn’t available, organizers of the event expected between 60 and 80 boats to show up at the marina.

For the Chris Craft boat owners and their families — which includes plenty of boating “commoners” — the Rendezvous is their chance to gather and share their latest adventures on the water. The show was open to all Chris Craft wooden boats, regardless of size, age or condition.
