What water taxi are you referring to? Can't find it on the website. Where does it depart from? Parking there? More info please

The water taxi runs from a dock at the boat show to a dock at the brokerage boats area. You have to be inside the show grounds to use it. The water taxi arrives and departs from the end of dock "F2", - at least in previous years!

We've never had any problems with strollers on the floating docks. Heck - groups of people standing around trying to decide what boat to go on next are more of an obstruction (and usually not a problem since the floating docks are quite wide).

The spring show which is much smaller overall had more used and affordable boats than the brokers row in the fall.

Re: Annapolis Boat Show October!

I went to brokerage row last year. Most everything there was unappealing at any price point. I like looking at boats, so wasnít offended by it, but have to think itís not a very successful area for sales. Could be wrong.

Ironically, I boarded a Hylas 70 (ArchAngel)in brokerage cove, that I had originally been aboard approx 6-7 years earlier, when she was on display as a brand new yacht at the Hylas display in the main show. Big difference. Of course, she had also been dismantled since, after ramming a ledge in Maine at hull speed. Oops.

Re: Annapolis Boat Show October!

Plan on a big budget.
We went last year. Never again.
Several designs have features. That go against small vessel engineering. Low hung big windows are aleady proving to be a problem for insuarance companies. They build for luxury not cruising.

I had not heard that insurance companies were running into issues with large portlights in the hull. These have been a feature in power boats since the 1980's, multihulls for the past 20 or more years, and have shown up on a lot of the newer monohull boats, but especially on some of the more highly respected European cruising designs. When this was discussed a few years ago someone pointed out that there is a specific engineering section of the CE Standards that deal with portlights in the hull.

Where did you see/hear that portlights in the hull are "aleady proving to be a problem for insurance companies."

Re: Annapolis Boat Show October!

Please read my last post carefully.
I said windows, not portlights or ports.
I did not say what years or models.

OK, put aside your semantic nit-picking and provide some facts to back up your original statement. Exactly what “problems” are insurance companies having with windows, and what type, year, or models?
