This year, especially, since the February Vancouver boat show has been cancelled I suspect you'll see a lot of people heading south for this one.

The best part of the Seattle Boat show used to be the in-the-water floating broker's show on Lake Union. If that's still on I'd go to that. You get the see all the brokerage boats available, a more realistic display for most of us who will likely never buy a new boat anyway. Anyone know if that part's still on??

With our stronger dollar there may well be deals on gear and accessories at the various booths at the indoor show.

While the Vancouver show hasn't been a "sailboat" show for several years, I think Seattle has always done a better job of that.
