Powerboat show is quite different than the sailboat show in the sense that the sailboat show is truly a big premier show for their industry. People come in from all over the country and world for it. The powerboat show is more of a regional crowd.

I have been going to the powerboat show for many years and never experienced this. Most boats you can get right on and off. Usually the larger ones gain more attention, like the big sportfisherman. I always have a great time at the powerboat show.

Yeah after he left me he ran north. I kept catching where I was so I didn't move. Sure was pretty on Saturday. What boat do you have?

Trump economy in full swing. Should be a good year at the powerboat show.

Just got back to the office from moving the 46CB in (Markley hull). Had a nice sail up this morning and even had time to pause out front and jig up a couple.
I'll be there for the entire show, so stop in and say hello!

I'm hoping to go sunday morning if I'm not on the water. I have not been in 10+ years. I would be looking at the vendors of accessories and such.

Spoke to you guys last year and climbed around the 26. That was a beautiful boat. Looking forward to see what you have this year!

The show was dead. Worse than last year's preview day.

I enjoyed it but I always do. Always make a point of going on preview day (used to be VIP day), always spend money I wasn't planning to.

They've got the usual assortment of insurance agents, loan institutions, electronics, optics, and general gadgets. Walked the piers, but didn't go on any boats since I am not in the market.

One shortcoming I did note was that not all the exhibits were set up. I'd think that for the extra money paid to get in the show, everything would be ready to go.

Docks were empty yesterday. I think the forecast scared a lot of people away. Judge had someone come very early to write a contract but wanted to get home before the "big storm" hit. Weather was warm and humid but the rain held off all day.

Gonna head over with my wife this afternoon. I’m crossing my fingers that the weather holds out. She’s excited the see the interiors of the larger cruisers and sporties, I remember having to take shoes off to board some of those boats last year, should she wear sandals to make it easy?
