The 3rd Annual Bluff’s Landing Boat Show & Expo kicks off Friday at 1 p.m.

There will be a whole new lineup of boats for 2019, from a variety of manufacturers, to fishing gear and apparel. All by the top names in the industry!

There will also be a chance to donate to the U.S. Coast Guard while shopping for your next boat.

Brandon Upton, owner of Corpus Christi’s Sea Tow and veteran, says once he knew the USCG was the only military branch not getting paid, it hit close to home.

He collaborated with the Bluff’s Landing Boat Show Coordinator, Geoff Austin of the Pro Redfish Series, to create a donation stop for the USCG.

People can buy a raffle ticket for $5, or 5 for $20, and have a chance to win a slew of prizes, like a Yeti cooler, fishing trip packages, fishing rods, car stereos and more.

After the boat show, Upton will take all donations and whatever non-perishable items they raise to give to the U.S. Coast Guard.
