2011 Bayou Teche Wooden Boat Show Has Come and Gone

And it was a tremendous success!

See the new pages above for the 2011 show and our premiere 2010 show.

We had 28 boats total, that’s 14 over last year’s entries, so we are growing and we’re having more fun than ever. Our participants this year came from Alabama, Mississippi and of course Louisiana, with all manner of boats from pirogues to cruisers and campers.

Thanks so much to everyone who came to Franklin for the second show. You’ve touched our hearts and given us the signal we needed to continue the Bayou Teche Wooden Boat Show in the future.

    I’d like to thank both of you and all the others that helped put on your show this year. We boat owners were treated like royalty and made to feel completely at home. The food was amazing and the comradeship sitting around the participants area made this the most enjoyable weekend I’ve spent. I hope I’m invited back again next year but I would like to contribute in some way to help defray the expenses. Be assured I’ll talk-up the show at the Pirates Cove show next weekend.

    Thank you
    John Cockerham
