Boat Shows around?

I live in PA. I wish there were some boat shows coming up that have the F31 and F33 and Dragonfly's .. I would love to see more folding systems made today! I really love that system. it would be pretty cool to ride on them to before you buy one! I will keep looking around for a boat show, but do you guys go to boat shows at all? it hard to find any with the boats i am interested in now. I use to love Monohulls, now I am stuck on this folding tri!

son - to see tris you may have to wait for the Annapolis show which is reasonably close to you. There was a Dragonfly there last October among others. Perhaps there's something in New England, but I'll defer to those locals to offer advice.

Just log onto their website in a couple of months and you will see
go to on the water display and to the multihull area
GRAND PAVOIS - Salon Nautique - La Rochelle

You can always send me a mail and I can check for you
DragonFly is always present and so is Ferrier and many others.
I really do not know of a show with more tri,s around
Good luck

La Rochelle

I can confirm what Gideon's saying about La Rochelle as we attended the show last year. We went for 4 days and found it to be a great place for multihulls of all shapes and sizes. Unlike most shows everything is focussed around the in water boats and not the normal 5 square miles of chandlers and boat bits. A shuttle boat runs from the main harbour to the show every 20 minutes throughout the day.
La Rochelle is a great place, a little expensive for hotels and food but not too bad if you move slightly further away from the harbour area. Hotel availability is a problem so book early through the tourist board who seem to control the room allocations.

Le Grand Pavois - Salon Nautique International Flot - La Rochelle - Charentes Maritimes - Nautisme et Tourisme gives Sept 10th to 15th 2008.
Search on la rochelle for lots of accomodation.
Not too far from Paris, rent a car and make it a 2 day tour through Chartres (the cathedral) and Le Mans (the cicuit) on the way to le R. Wonderfull countryside.
French not required, english / american phrase book suggested! Enjoy.

I am in the USA not Paris so I am looking for shows that have Multihulls in the USA, Mostly Trimarans cause they are trailerable. I am not going over seas anytime soon.
