Quick 'n' Dirty Boat Building Contest
The Quick 'n' Dirty Boat Building Contest is a two day fun filled festival in and of itself. The teams bring a Mardi Gras feel to the festival by picking themes, naming their boat and dressing up in costume. "Lord of the Tchefuncte", and "Reigning Clowns" are two examples of names past crews have used. Trophies are given for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, "Best of Show", "Shipshape Award" and "Subsurface Cruiser".
