Every day is a good day to live in Myrtle Beach and on the Grand Strand and no month is a better month than October. The average temperature is in the mid 70’s with relative humidity in the 20’s. October usually has the most days of sunshine. And water temperature is still a comfortable seventy five degrees. October is just another reason the Sales Executives at the Trembley Group Real Estate love living and playing in Myrtle Beach and along the Grand Strand.
But even with sixty miles of clean white sandy beaches, beautiful state parks, classic car and motorcycle shows, and more golf courses per square mile than just about any place in the world, for some at The Trembley Group Real Estate, the highlight of October is the Orange Bucket Challenge, helping those in need due to the flood.

29th Annual Georgetown Wooden Boat Show
Front Street and the Waterfront, Georgetown, SC
Saturday, October 20 & Sunday, October 21, 2018
The Georgetown Wooden Boat Show features one of the Southeast’s best wooden boat exhibits with more than 140 classic wooden boats displayed on land and water. The event showcases canoes, kayaks, surfboards, sailboats, inboard power boats, outboard power boats, owner designed and built yachts, and century class boats. The boat show also features children’s model boat building, knot tying, maritime art and crafts, food and music.
A special boat show attraction is Saturday’s Wooden Boat Challenge when teams of two battle each other and the clock to build a 12-foot rowing skiff – the CAROLINA BATEAU – within a maximum four-hour time limit! The teams are judged on building speed, workmanship, and rowing speed when they test their completed bateaux for seaworthiness in a rowing relay on the Sampit River. At the end of the day, cash prizes are awarded to first, second and third place winners.
The Challenge begins at noon with the command “Gentlemen, Start Your Skil Saws” which sets off a din of circular saws and the swirling of sawdust as tams begin building their bateaux. Quality counts for 1/3 of the points, speed of building for 1/3, and team rowing speed for the final 1/3.
Each team receives a set of plans for the rowing skiff and are encouraged to practice building a boat before the Challenge. On the Saturday of the event they’re issued the building materials. Using their own tools, each team builds within a 12 x 15 foot space under a tent with thousands of spectators urging them on. Believe it or not, some teams finish in just two hours.
The Challenge ends with a whistle at 4 p.m. After the boats are judged for quality, the teams carry their newly built boats through the crowds to the floating docks. The boats are lowered into the Sampit River for the rowing race that begins at 5 p.m.
The Wooden Boat Challenge is open to men and women, family teams, boat builders, cabinetmakers and basically anyone with a competitive spirit and a love for sawdust, power tools and wooden boats. In 2016, a team completed a boat entirely by hand without the use of power tools.
Rob Dwelley of Wooden Boat Magazine calls the The Wooden Boat Challenge “the Superbowl of Boatbuilding. Only those who have seen it can begin to understand what drives these men and their thousands of annual spectators.”
Sunday is a fun-filled family oriented day that includes a Cardboard Boat Regatta, and an Opti Pram Regatta. Interested in attending? Check out the schedule of events for updates.
The Georgetown Wooden Boat Show is sponsored by the Harbor Historical Association of Georgetown with all proceeds benefitting the South Carolina Maritime Museum on the waterfront in downtown historic Georgetown. The association began in 1996 with a mission to preserve and promote the maritime history of Georgetown County and South Carolina.
The museum opened its doors in late 2011 with a vision of becoming the best of its kind in the Southeast. It is home to the Fresnel lens of the old North Island lighthouse. The museum features photographs, documents, artifacts, and interactive exhibits related to South Carolina’s rich and remarkable maritime history.
Even many longtime local residents are not aware of the history and charm of Georgetown. From its earliest beginnings as the probable site of the first European settlement in North America in 1526, to its present status as a vibrant and gracious city of 9,000, Georgetown has long been known for its warm hospitality and Southern charm.
The third oldest city in South Carolina, Georgetown was founded in 1729 and became an official port of entry in 1732.
The first permanent settlers to the area were the English who were actively involved in the Indian trade. French and Scots settlers arrived shortly after and added to an expanding English contingent. During these early days of settlement most were either traders, planters or producers of naval stores. Until the onset of the civil War, Georgetown flourished. Indigo and rice became the major crops of the area.
Georgetown played an active role in the American Revolution by sending Thomas Lynch, Sr. and Thomas Lynch, Jr. to the Continental Congress where the younger was a signer of the Declaration of Independence. British troops occupied Georgetown from July, 1780 to May, 1781 and many of the skirmishes between Francis Marion, the Swamp Fox, and British troops took place in Georgetown County.
After the Revolution, the local planters turned almost exclusively to the production of rice. By 1840, the Georgetown District (County) produced nearly one-half of the total rice crop of the United States and the port exported more rice than any port in the world.
The Civil War changed the whole way of life for this region. The reconstruction period that followed was a social, political and economic upheaval. The rice crops following the war were failures and rice could no longer support the economy of Georgetown. The combination of the loss of free labor, competition from Southwestern rice growers, and several devastating hurricanes spelled the end of the once thriving rice trade by the dawn of the twentieth century.
The need for an economic alternative to rice was met by lumber. The Atlantic Coast Lumber Company was incorporated in 1903. By 1914, it was the largest lumber producing plant on the East Coast. However, in 1932 ACL declared bankruptcy and Georgetown entered a period of immense economic decline. Recovery began in 1936 when International Paper Company built a plant here. By 1942 this plant had become the largest kraft paper mill in the world. Georgetown Steel and an array of other smaller plants diversified Georgetown’s industrial base. Commercial fishing has become a significant industry. In recent years, retirees and vacationers have contributed greatly to the well-being of the area. Tourism has become an increasingly significant element in the area’s economy.
Georgetown’s long history combined with its diversity of cultures, linkage to the sea, triumphs, defeats and revitalizations have all contributed to create an area known for its charm and beauty. When visiting Georgetown for the boat show, don’t miss the opportunity to explore this charming and historic city. There’s even a house on the waterfront where George Washington spent the night. Who knows, maybe you’ll want to contact a Trembley Real Estate Professional and start the next chapter of your life in one of Georgetown’s historic homes.
