Boat swap and ‘Pedalboard’ demos at Frisco Bay Marina for National Marina Day June 10

Want to try a pedalboard? Not sure how it works? This weekend is your chance during the annual Frisco Bay Marina boat swap and demo days.
Special to the Daily

Need to sell a sailboat? Want to try a stand-up paddleboard? How about a stand-up “pedalboard?”

This weekend is your chance. On Saturday, June 10, the Frisco Bay Marina celebrates National Marina Day with a boat swap, free demos and lessons with the Frisco Rowing Center. The center offers a free breakfast and introduction to rowing from 8-10 a.m., followed by the boat swap from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The swap is open to anyone and everyone in the boat market, according to a release from the marina, and participants may trade, sell, buy or barter kayaks, rafts, stand-up paddleboards, sailboats and everything in between.

All sellers must remain on-site with their for-sale items at all times during the swap and all boats must be removed from the premises immediately following the swap. All transactions are between buyer and seller only — the Frisco Bay Marina will not handle any monetary transactions. Sellers and buyers should be prepared to handle transactions with cash or checks, if accepted.

If you’re bringing a sailboat or other craft on a trailer, call the Frisco Bay Marina to reserve a space, as space is limited. Registration is not required for any other sellers.

Along with the swap, the Frisco Bay Marina is also offering free, 20-minute canoe, kayak and stand-up paddleboard demos from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. This will also be an exclusive chance to try out the Marina’s new fleet of Hobie Stand-Up Pedalboards, which feature a stepper propulsion system and a handlebar — think an elliptical exercise machine on the water. The Pedalboard demos are also free, which makes it an ideal time to check out a new sport.

For more information about the Frisco Bay Marina, email or call 970-668-4334.
