Southwest Boat Show Houston March 21st

Hi,
Has anyone been to this show? It is about 200 miles away from me and as some one looking to find a cruising boat and learn about what's available I am thinking of going.

Unless you are wanting to buy a fishing boat, not really worth the time. They will have a Hunter of some flavor on display as well as a Beneteau and that is most likely it for sailboats. A good place to pick up nautical themed t-shirts and drink coozies, that is about it.

Re: Southwest Boat Show Houston March 21st

I've been a couple of times. Last year they had at least 3 catamarans, I really liked the Leopard. There were Catalinas, Hunters, Beneteaus and used boats. This is not a large show like Miami or Annapolis but they are trying. Yes you can look at fishing boats and get your coozies but for Texas, it's a pretty good show.

I think this show (in it's current configuration) has been around for two years. The first year was a little lean, but last year was much better. Many sailing type vendors. i.e. anchors, hardware, etc. Hope this year is even better.

Welcome, Landlocked! Hope you're not in one of the more drought-stricken areas or do get chances to run down to the Gulf coast.
