Visitors to the Beaufort waterfront will have the opportunity to see the fishing boat that became the inspiration for the book and movie Jaws. The legendary Cricket II will be at the town docks in Beaufort as part of the North Carolina Maritime Museum’s 43rd Annual Wooden Boat Show. Over forty years ago, Steven Spielberg’s shark saga, Jaws, frightened millions of moviegoers out of the water. The movie was released in June 1975.  Free Admission. Open to the Public.
