Toronto boatshow

I have been going to the boatshow for years.... But for the last few years I don't walk the isles much..... I spend most of the time in the free seminars that they offer.... They are all very interesting and some very valuable....

If you have never done them .... I am going to suggest it

Re: Toronto boatshow

I think the seminars are the gem in the crown this year.

The Pardeys will be there and a lot of other folks giving info for first timers who can't afford a 'gold-plater' and all the bits that go with it ($120 for an oil lamp? Really?).

I'm hoping to learn how to make my Columbia an ocean going vessel.

Re: Toronto boatshow

We never miss it... mainly because it breaks up the long winter, and reassures us that spring (and launch) is going to happen.

We usually have one or two purchasing objectives, and we generally find that we can find a "show" deal, or bargain hard to get vendors to compete a little. One year it was inexpensive coastal jackets; last year it was a Davis sextant. This year... no specific goal except social - a few of the Ontario Sandpiper fleet are coming up to do the show with us.
