Rivetpalooza, the grand daddy of all riveted events, held down on Beautiful Lake Norman, North Carolina. This has been the largest gathering of Feather Crafts with people bringing their boats to this event from all over the USA. In 2015 there were 33 vintage riveted boats, 31 of which were Feather Crafts. Hosted by Russ and Kathy Cleaton.


This get together is held twice a year, once in the Spring and again in the Fall. This get together is both on land and water. Several cruises are done and on the Saturday of the weekend the boats are part of the Antique Outboard Motor Show which features Feather Crafts.
