If you are a serious buyer and want attention go on Friday. Great show, draws great crowds. The Westin has a shuttle to the dock
area. You can try to park in Eastport and take the water
taxi. In addition to manufacturers of boats and equipment
, there are great deals at the Defender, West and GPS
Store (and other) booths/tents, and it is a great time to look at electronics
for your new vessel. i would not expect a lot of boats in your size range, but the major production boat builders will be there.
