Chris Craft wooden boats gather at Port Orchard Marina

Up to 80 vessels tied up for the 30th annual Rendezvous

PORT ORCHARD — Sleek, elegant wooden boats — namely, those with the sought-after Chris Craft monogram emblazoned on their hulls — added a look of refinement to the Port Orchard Marina last weekend during the 30th annual Chris Craft Rendezvous boat show.

As in past years, the event attracted between 60 and 80 wooden vessels to the marina.

According to Chris Craft boat owners and their families, the Rendezvous always is an opportunity for boaters to congregate and share stories about their sailings over the past 12 months. The show was open to all Chris Craft wooden boats, regardless of size, age or condition, organizers said.
