Association of Finnish Wooden boat builders has also their exhibition full of beautiful handicrafts in the form of wooden boats. One of the exhibitors is Saimaan Puuvene from Rantasalmi.
Jarmo Jauhanen from Saimaan Puuvene has made two boats using VENDIA marineplank and brought these to boats Wäinö and Aino to the boat show. Model Wäinö is based on 125-year-old boat models and is a model created by Saimaan Puuvene. Wäinö is 5 meters long and has width of 1,5 meters. Aino is sister of Wäinö as it is a halfgliding fishing and trip boat.
Plenty of people have visited the boat show and also boat sales have been nice.
