Re: Newport RI Boat Show Discussion
We skipped the Newport Boat Show and just went to the free brokerage show because we weren't shopping for anything in particular this year. We went aboard several sailboats, some for ideas for our boat, some simply out of curiosity. I enjoyed checking out the layouts and finishes of the wide variety of boats by Hinkley, Oyster, Tartan, etc. Did I mention it's free?
The highlight for me was a 1983 Cape Dory 45, Fiona Rois. We spent a long time chatting with Mike, the owner of this beautiful, meticulously cared for boat. He wasn't kidding when he said that his listing at fiona4sale.com
is detailed. It's nice to have pictures of the ideas I intend to copy.
Was it in Newport? Never heard of the free brokerage show.
