St. Pete had almost no sailboats

It was a poor showing if you were a sailor looking for a boat as there were hardly any there. A couple of really junky used sailboats, beneteaus and jeanneaus which look like IKEA catalogs. Catalina brought a pimped out 355, 385 and 445. The 355 had lots of teak, not sure what was up with that.

Hunter had the best showing and I loved the cabin of the e33 but the cockpit was too small. If only they could combine the cabin of the e33 with the cockpit of the e36. The e36 really botched the cabin. Shouldn't all of the builder figured out that top and side loading fridges are the way to go today?

Oh well, it was a nice day and if you like powerboats there were lots.
