I don't think I'm ever going to it again as it isn't really even worth a Feb boat "fix".
last year was a big larger. they opened another partition in the hall.
Just too bad there are not a lot of sailboats.
Was at the providence show..they had a double decker pontoon boat with a slide... very redneck!
still decent entertainment for $12. Also most people forget about the seminars (not just mine!), can add a lot of value to the show if you like the topics. I try and do a sailing seminar each year to offset all the power oriented ones. And you get a free magazine subscription with the admission. so not a total loss.
But yes the shows are a shadow of their former glory, but slowly improving.
