This is our second year doing this event as a group of local citizens who want to bring race boats back to the Mississippi River. We want to offer you this opportunity to test your boats before the formal racing season begins. We want this event to continue to grow, and everybody is excited at having a boat show with the racing boats coming back to Muscatine. Bob's Crane Service is back this year with the Whitlow family with 2 cranes available for service.
