My wife and I went to the show on Saturday. The inside exhibits were a lot smaller this year than any time in the last 5 years that I have been going. But key players were there for engines, sails, rigging, water makers, heads, woodworking, electronics, etc. There were even a few small sailboats inside in the 14' or less range that were new this year, and sea kyacks with & without sails had a very large showing. The in water display size was smaller as well, but Nordhavn's 56' Motorsailer was there and that was quite impressive. At $1,600,000 base price, $2,200,000 fully ready to go, and a 2 year wait for one, I won't be getting one any time soon, but it was impressive to see. IP's motorsailer was there as well. Tarten and C&C were there with a lot of traffic even given all the press that has been going on with them. The show was enjoyable, but definately smaller than in past years. I am still trying to find a sail cover / seat cuchion guy in San Diego. Still no luck.
