We discovered pretty quickly that he didn't like to heel. After that, we focused on catamarans. If we hadn't taken the lessons, we would have ended up buying a boat that he would have hated.

We know couples who love the larger newer catamarans, but really hadn't sailed we they bought one of the new productions boats and went off-shore with it, they ended up having to run jacklines (lines to hold on to) through the salon in order to get around the salon. There were no handholds.

If you're just going to look at boats (like we did for 8 years) have fun and look at everything. We hope to see you there.

Maje,

Thanks for the advice but I know that basically I don't know anything. I have no preconception on what kind of boat I would like or anything. I am going more for the "fun" of looking at everything and to get away with my wife.

I would love it if this was only the first of many sailboat shows sprinkled in with a healthy dose of charters. This is only a fantasy right now but I want to take it slowly enough to find out if I really enjoy it and learn the right way.

This will only be a pleasure trip and not a "find the right boat" activity. Just looking forward to seeing some of the boats that I have dreamed about

Hopefully this will be the first step on a long fulfilling journey that culminates with me in the Caribbean.

That's exactly what we did for 8 years before we bought.

Have fun!

We can do Thursday night. Just name a place and time. The only night we can't do is Friday.

Well I am definitely jealous of your choice because your boat is one of the ones that I am most interested in seeing at the show this year!!

Re: Annapolis Boat Show: CF Roundup

Thursday night is good. Someone who knows Annapolis well pick a time and place.

Re: Annapolis Boat Show: CF Roundup

Just wanted to bump this up. Despite my location, I don't know Annapolis well, but if any of the true locals want to recommend a place for Thursday or Friday I'd love to try to make it if home from work in Philly!

We really need to nail this thing down.

I guess if we just say who cannot attend on a particular day, for example, Friday is out for me. Then we can pick the day when most of us can be there.

Re: Annapolis Boat Show: CF Roundup

We'll be in town Friday night and Saturday.

For folks looking for lodging late, the best bet is to sleep farther away and drive in. There is well signed parking at the Naval Academy stadium and very frequent shuttles. Hampton Inn Annapolis has some $249 rooms left. You can save $100 per night by staying outside of town. Glen Burnie and Bowie are options, but options across the Bay Bridge might be more fun.

Cheers, RickG
