Boat shows: Annapolis vs Newport

Hi everyone,

I'm considering going to the Annapolis or Newport boat shows this year. The Annapolis one claims they have they have the "World’s largest multihull displays" which sounds like a big plus. But Newport is closer to me. So many choices...

I've already tried to look at the event maps but it's not easy to compare the two of them area-wise.

Does anyone have any strong opinions on the matter? (such as "Annapolis is a madhouse but Newport isn't" or "Newport is tiny compared to Annapolis Boat Show so don't even bother"). I'll be going to a Bed & Breakfast to make the trip wife-compatible, so I'd appreciate some input before I plonk down a big hunk of money there...

Thanks,
Iraklis
