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.
