It was about 1/2 the size of last years, filled with power boats and 2 island packets. 1 concession booth that I saw with a huge line. All in all better then nothing, but not by much.

not worth the time

I made it on Saturday morning and spent a few hours, wondering through the various motor boats, frustration growing each time a tripped over the stroller of someone only there to watch the chicken wing eating contest. As far as venders, I found few boating suppliers and far more marinas, insurance co., and maintenance services, oh and if you need guards for your rain gutters have I got a contact for you, not that it does me much good living aboard. Overall it was a waste of time, especially considering how great the weather was... I should have just stayed home and gone sailing.

I went for the first time. Long lines to board the two sailboats. (and there were only two, not counting a Walker Bay dinghy and some sort of sailboard)

Nice club display of old wooden runabouts out front. I bought my ticket online. It was a couple bucks cheaper and came with a year's subscription to my choice of 3 magazines. (I picked Cruising World) If I chose not to get the magazine I could get my $7 back by mailing in the email confirmation marked "REFUND" I requested the magazine, father in law asked for a refund. It hasn't been 4-6 weeks so I can't say if it'll work or not.

I was smitten with the smaller of the two Ranger Tugs at the show. Looked like year-round boating/fishing fun to me. And I could hang some retreads over the side and pick up extra cash shoving barges around.

Everything else looked pretty much the same. Who would buy a brand new runabout when a 2 year old one is half the price? and a 10 year old one is $1900. Thinking of getting one "just because" -- something to take out on windless days or fish and crab off of.

Keep the expenses low and the good times high.
