I agree with dinghy prices from Defender when they go on sale...usually in the winter. While Shawn is right about Oak Harbor and Ken is reputable as heck ( although not timely) we got a better deal on our new Harken furler from Harbor Haven by about $250 and they will match any specials you see on line also. We got the Harken IV Unit 2, but I think the Unikt 1 would fit Spindrift. Their labor is cheaper by $25 per hour to install. It could be put on on a weekend sail over there in a few hours. I would recommend replacing the forestay at the same time and also make sure you get the right toggle for the foot to have the Harken off the deck.

BTW we are planning Cacaway this coming weekend., are you guys game?

Dave

Hi,
We went Saturday and Sunday. We were able to park Saturday in a church lot for $20. Not bad (although they obviously weren't offering the lot on Sunday). Sunday was a LOT less crowded than Saturday, therefore more enjoyable. I noticed most of the same vendors as last time, which I guess is a good sign of the economy. People were lined up to see the Beneteaus and Jeanneaus like they were giving them away! Which, in comparison to some of the other boats, kinda seemed like they were. LOL I think Jeanneau had some starting in the range of @$280,000 for a 40'.

We were there Friday and parked in the stadium for $10.00, $34.00 for admission, $3.00 for a bottle of water and $12.00 for two cups of soup. Only went on two boats, a Farr 40 and a Harken(?). We were there to talk with the vendors and to gather literature, not so much to see the boats we can't afford. On Saturday we visited Bacon Sails and ended up buying a main. It was our first time to the Annapolis boat show. Tad over priced but over all a good experience. Got some grand kids visiting time in as well.

Good Show

This was my first boat show, I had a great time. However, it was much like any other type of trade show I have been to, but a lot less crowded than I expected (i.e., Oshkosh Air Adventure).

I thought the food prices were reasonable, a lot less that at a ski resort. Vendors were friendly, and there were numerous show specials, especially with the sail magazines.

It was great to see all the boats. I was surprised that Jenneau had almost as many boats there as all the rest put together. They had quite a setup, lounge, salesmen, and hostesses.

My favorite booth was the free gin or maybe vodka booth. I liked it.

We parked on Riva road due to the Navy homegame (I can't believe I was so close to the Naval Academy, not my favorite place, Go Army!), anyway the bus transportation from Riva Road to the show was well run and timely. Parking was $10.00 which included round trip bus trans. Did not have to wait for the buses, just walked up, got on and the bus left, about a 15 minute drive either way.

Overall, well organized show, lots of fun, good place to learn about sailing. Pusser's had good food and Great Beer!

BTW, the dingy dock was not so well organized, but that seems to be the situation in many other places as well.

Captainmeme,

Since your wristband gets you in an out of the show all day, if you decide to go again you might want to consider buying water from the CVS that's within about 50 feet of the entrance and eating in one of the many restaurants that are within spitting distance of the show. I expect higher food prices inside the show gates, kind of like most trade shows. When we go we step out and eat lunch at one of the bars. It gets us away from the crowd and we take some time to look over the brochures we picked up and maybe work on a strategy for when we get back inside.

Great video PCP.. I was laughing

I usually have my strategy before I go to the show. Dickering to get better prices on things I really need or want. Its a great place to meet friends too. $7 for a delicious pit beef sandwhich at the fleet club with and ice cold draft for 5$ seems resonsable so as not to have to fight the crowds in and out of the show and eat the crappy food with the snarling servers in the restaurants surrounding the boat show. The ice ceam place is the best in the shows vicinity.

Now dinner is different...Josses has great bait...I mean sushi and sashimi for dinner.

Dave

I spent Saturday and Sunday at the show and it was great. Being from Los Angeles, part of the enjoyment was simply looking around the charming city of Annapolis. I hadn't been off the parking bus 5 minutes when I said, "I want to live here". LOL. Spent Saturday checking out boats. My favorites were the Tartan 37, Jeauneau 439 and, if I hit the lottery, the Outbound 46. Not sure where I've been, but GEEZ! have boats become expensive. Having spent Sunday learning that I can replace my 36 footer for a cool $ 250,000 - $ 350,000, I spent Sunday walking the tents looking for things to buy to improve my humble, but paid for, boat. Found a great deal, IMO, on a Honda 2000 generator. $ 899 + 25 shipped to Cali and no sales tax. Don't think I could beat that anywhere. Spending this week sightseeing in DC, quick stop at Ohio State to see my kid and home on Monday. I would definitely like to come back and will plan to see/learn more about the area next time.

Mike

Mike great deal on the Honda did you know you can get attachment and run it on propane. I have been reading about that as that may be a better way to go with it.

Hope you have fun in dc and visit some of the museums I suggested.

Dave
