Yeah, I'm having a great time meeting folks and visiting friends, going to seminars, and picking people's brains. i haven't bought too much but one big purchase
was a CPT autopilot
. They gave me a good boat show
discount and came to our boat to measure the pedestal/guard and figure out how it would fit. Good folks to deal with and a nice family
. Scanmar who makes monitor
windvanes has a great booth and Hans is there. He has just sold the business to a nice couple and they are at the booth introducing theirselves and taking orders. Schaefer hardware
and Garhauer, especially, have a big selection of beautiful hardware
is missing, which is interesting since they are a sponsor
. Svenson's is well represented.
If you go and want lunch, I recommend the Caribbean
rice bowl from the stand out on the grass. Really good and healthy too.
