Have you ever seen an all-electric motor boat? What about solar panels you can use to charge your boat while you're out fishing? Renewable energy for boaters, as well as used boats and beautifully-crafted behemoths will be on display at the 54th Portland Boat Show, taking over the Portland Expo Center this weekend.
"I've got everything here," show manager Peter O'Loughlin said over the phone, rattling off half a dozen categories, from car-toppers and runabouts to luxury houseboats. The variety ensures there will be something for everyone, he said, as long as you come with some level of interest in the boating lifestyle.
