This year is a special treat for me. My wife, daughter, and son are willing to go with me. I told them I am going for boat shopping this year. ....hahaha. My daughter will make a trip from NYC to home.

In this order:

1. Check out the Chicks, and flirt with them and leave my business card for future hook up while my daughter and wife are watching.
2. Check out Beneteau First Series especially 36.7 and 40. If possible left up the floor to see the tank arrangement.
3. Check out Bavaria, Hanse, and Hallberg-Rassy
4. Look at Shannon and Valiant etc. Just for comparison, can't afford it.
5. Take pics of the mid boom and end boom with the traveler set up.
6. If good price, buy a ACR PLB 2884 or 2883, but I doubt it.
7. Keep my eyes and ears wide open, learn from others how to look like a billionaire and teach my kids how to spot a phony.
8. Try not to buy any junk. Going in with empty hands and hoping to get out with empty hands.
9. Go dinner with the family but will be far away from the boat show crowd.
10. At dinner, summarize my finding from the show. Restate the objectives and have them to buy in my BS.....hahahah. Set the time table for the boat purchase. If the situation is not going my way. I will say: Mommy's money is our money, and my money is MINE. It works every time for last 30 years.
11. Mission accomplished

Itinerary and order are subjected to change.

I am old school. Integrity is to do the right thing even when no one is watching.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

As for boats, all I really want to see is the HR 40, Outbound 52, and Antares 44...all pretty much pipe dreams for me, but fun none the less.

Ah..boat show weekend. Everyone at work knows these are a “religious” holiday for me, and I won’t be around. This year we are going on Friday, and I get to introduce my beautiful bride to the boat show experience – dreaming about the cruising boats we’ll never afford, seeing new “should we or shouldn’t we buy” toys for our Beneteau 343, and, of course, pit-beef sandwiches and Painkillers. Nice way to ease her into the Annapolis lifestyle after her move here from the Pacific Northwest. We are visiting the charter companies looking for a deal on a week in the BVIs. Then we load the boat and maybe head for the Chester R for the long weekend.

The HR40 at the show, Pusteblume, was delivered from Daytona Beach to Annapolis the week before last by *ahem* me. *grin*

She is a 2008 Classic. If either of you guys are interested in the Original I'd be happy to show you mine. I'll be at the show Friday and Sunday and have a client on Saturday morning. We can work out a walkthrough Saturday afternoon before the SN gathering that evening.

sail fast and eat well, dave

Sailing down solo on Thursday from Baltimore which should be nice with 10-15 winds out of the west. Staying the entire show and boat sitting on the Jeanneaus. Kind of sacreligous for a Benny Boy but it should be fun. The wife is coming in by car and we'll go drool on the megabuck boats and spend a few bucks in the tents too. It also coincides with our anniversary so we'll also celebrate that. It's great to have a wife that thinks our anniversary should be spent at the show
