|The Rockwall Area Chamber of Commerce are excited to announce the Rockwall Boat Show, coming Sept. 28-29 at The Harbor.
Sponsored by the Dallas Morning News, Rockwall’s inaugural “on land & in the water” boat show will feature new and vintage boats, stunning performances by the Metroplex Mavericks Show Ski Team, and flyboard demonstrations – the newest craze in water recreation – compliments of Bobby Vance and Gulf States Flyboard.
Exhibitors from the Wooden Boat Association of North Texas will showcase an outstanding array of antique and classic watercraft from the 1930s to 70s, with well known brands like Chris-Craft, Century and Gar Wood, as well as lesser known makes such as Cowell and Glass Magic. The WBA has been proactive in locating Yellow Jacket Boats, a popular line of molded plywood boats made in Denison from 1949-59, and Willis boats made by Willis Boat Works of Dallas, a racing boat specialist that had its plant on Grand Avenue near Fair Park from the 1930s to the early 1960s. WBA members have collected and restored several examples of both marquees.
