Re: Bummed...

I was at the show Thur. evening.
I had a good time, but it was obvious the show was significantly smaller this year. Both ends of the venue were cordoned off because the space was not needed. Also, the big Mfgs had visibly fewer boats in each of their exhibits. I also noticed that West Marine did not bother to have a booth, as in years past. All this, coupled with a sparse first-night crowd, made it kind of a lackluster event.
On the upside, I did get a great deal on Jib Cars from the Garhauer booth.
Anyway, I think your choice to stay home was probably wise.
Cheers,
Joel H.

Thanks for the report. I was wondering how the turn out was with all the weather issues going on in the area.

Re: Bummed...

Light crowd Friday , But had a packed house Saturday.
Having fewer boats there meant longer lines to see those that were there.
Seminars were great as always.

Re: Bummed...

My wife an I drove down on Saturday, and must admit, the driving conditions were horrid, semis were off the road like I had never seen before and the roads were a mess. There were noticeably few displays, but we made the most of it and had a good time anyways, got to talk to a lot of venders...seminars were good.

Re: Bummed...

Thanks for the comments & reports fellow Sailnetters- especially those Michiganders who braved the elements to make it-

We have been catching up on House of Cards and otherwise chilling all weekend- At the end of the day I saved some $$$ on gas, hotel & food (and probably a few impulse buys) that now can be re-appropriated....



Cheers all!
