Well James, if you can make it to the states next year you can come with us. We'll put you up too...the shows a blast!

This year we got 7 quotes from sailmakers, found a really neat combo hatch screen and shade, and bought a Force 10 3 burner oven and a Manson Supreme #45. Big year for us!!! Here's what I collect most at the show, and it's free...IDEAS!!! This show: anchor storage rollers...

Thanks for the offer Chris...I may very well take you up on it.
You got it right about why to go....its always about the ideas.
Thatís why I'm always asking folks to post photos...I sure appreciate yours.
Interesting pics on the bow rollers.
I just put my new Rocna on last time I was at the boat....As you can see from the photo I have a little modifying to do to the top of the roller housing to get the anchor shank to fully drop down when stowed.

They screwed up and sent Galv....but with in 3 days had corrected the order and had the SS one on the plane. I was impressed with their service.

Did you notice any significant savings buying at the show?

I don't think I would have the courage to put a stainless steel anchor over the side. It seems too much like using a Rolex as a fishing weight.

Really enjoyed the show. Spent too much money, but what the heck, I got some good deals and lots of information. A local company was able to fix my EPIRB and replace the battery and antenna. It was ready the next day. Also bought an Engle freezer which I need since I converted the old top loading one into my refridgerator. It will be nice to have Ice cream on board again.

Speaking of painkillers, when he was making mine he ran out of mix, so he filled the restup with more rum. WOW!! A little wobbly on the way to the hotel. Glad I wasn't driving.

I did notice that some of the builders had cut back on the number of boats they had. It seems that most of the space was taken up, so there must have been new ones.

It is my favourite show, being compact. I don't think I'll ever go back to Miami again. It is just too big and difficult to get from one venue to another on the bus from hell.

I like the Oyster Perpetual for fluke and blackfish. The Submariner is better for trolling...

Did you notice that Morris only showed their giant "Daysailors"? I love their cruising designs, but I cant wrap my head around a $1,000,000 week-ender.

That's just because the boats they built for us cruisers were finished in the late 70s and 80s ....
