That is too bad.
We went aboard several times on Thurs and Fri. I have to do that to "update" the "pictures in my head". I was probably on board for almost 2 hours on Thurs. No sales pitch. Just company owner giving his ideas and current
owners/6mos liveaboards telling us what they think. Biased........yup.
On Fri there were a lot more people and we had to wait for some to leave the inside so more could fit. No different than other crowded boats for us though.
But then Manta is first choice for me. For some reason I keep coming back to it. It seems to have more of the "little things" I / we like.
The other bests are Broadblue
for second place. Third is Seawind 1160
I am just one lotto ticket away from ordering one....................
As it turns out after asking a few questions and being shown some ot the "under" and "behind" things - which is why I wanted to go to the show anyway - we filled out info sheets
for all the above boats and a couple more. No biggi for me. I was honest with them all by telling them my work had slowed and the wife's company was not doing as well as we had hoped for so far. Oh well.........
