Annapolis, Maryland (I-Newswire) February 4, 2014 - The team at Chesapeake Light Craft, the boat kit experts, will be heading south with a caravan full of kayaks, sailboats, and rowing craft so Florida small craft aficionados can touch, feel, and take a spin in one of the company's demonstrator models.
