Annapolis hands down. I highly prefer a sail only show and they split sail and power on consecutive weeks. Enormous display of boats of all sizes. More equipment vendors than you could visit in two days.

I asked one of the equipment vendors, who displays at both shows to tell me the difference in attendance and crowds. Naturally, the power boaters are all drunk.......

He did say that weather was an attendance factor. If the shows are on sunny days, both get a great turnout. However, if it rains, the stink potters stay home, while attendance at the sail show goes up, foulies and all !!

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
