Default Mystic Seaport engine show in August

I am hoping to take my brother to this show. He was an instructor at a marine engine school and repair shop in NJ. He is having trouble getting around now but still likes to see engines.

Has anyone been to this show? Is it worth a three day, two night trip to see?

What day is best to visit the show?

Thanks

The show is great.Steam engines running, steam winch etc. My favorite was the Packard V12 PT boat engine running. They run the big engines at different times. Also collectors bring they engines from old outboards to 1 cylinder inboards. A great mix all around and the seaport itself is great. If you can do a weekend overnighter I think you would enjoy the area.

Forgot to tell you about the USS Nautilus museum (first nuclear sub) and Groton Electric boat all in that area.

If you're able to access what we used to call the "Upper Base" at Naval Submarine Support Facility, in Groton, CT there's a nice little submarine museum that's worth taking in.

Thanks Guys.

I probably drove passed Mystic 3 - 4 times a year on business and never stopped due to business schedules.

I forgot about the sub Base.

I am going to try to get my brother there this year.

I set up there a few years ago, and it was a great show! The downside was that there are no camping areas around there, and the cheapest motel room I found was $160 a night. That discouraged me from setting up there any more. Perhaps if you have a friend local to the area you can stay with, it would be good to exhibit at then.
