"~"~ ~~ --"-- --------'-jMf^fo^ e£! Y:jr$ift*----·-- Sponsors Sought for Skiffs The Great Kanawha River Navy is looking for sponsors for the final five of 22 skiffs that will participate in races here Aug. 30 as part of the week-long Stern- wheel Regatta festival. The 16-foot skiffs, built by Boone Weaver of Racine. Ohio, are being sold to local business firms. Price of each skiff, including two sets of oars and three life cushions, is $325. Seventeen have already been sold. Three races are planned, including a one-half mile open eveat, a one-quarter mile event for fathers and sons, and a one- eighth mile event for girls. Finish line is at the C 0 Bridge in downtown Charleston. Boat owners may furnish their own crews or they can ask the sponsoring organization to obtain a crew for them. Persons interested in buying a boat for entry in the race may contact Bob Barr at Bob Pfefflps a! Holiday he No- 1 or any member of ute Great Kaaawfea River Navy. The latter group is handling all river activities for the regatta. The durable skiffs, which are used by towboats and lock and dam personnel on the Ohio River system, probably won't be built after this year, Barr said. He pointed out that Weaver, the builder, is 77 years old. The skiff works has been a Weaver family business for more than 100 years. The skiffs will be displayed in a parade through the downtown area next Saturday, Aug. 23. Barr said there is still time for business firms buying the remaining skiffs to display them in the parade.
