DECK THE HULLS!!!
the Results of the 2007 Lighted Boat Parade
 

 

The 17th Annual Schooner Wharf Bar/Captain Morgan Rum Lighted Boat Parade was held last Saturday, December 15th.

The night was filled with wonder, creativity and originality. Great Job Mariners, Well Done!!! Thank you for a magical and inspiring holiday gift.

A fleet of 28 vessels, ranging from a self-built 16 foot solar powered boat to a classic 125 Schooner, delighted an awestruck crowd at the Historic Seaport and Key West Harbor.

Judges and spectators alike thought it was the best maritime parade ever!!!
