No, but I just went to the Philadelphia show. It was very good for a first year show. Much better than the Atlantic City show that it replaced. It was very cold. -2 degrees F when I left Philly this morning. The Miami show in February is a better option.

Andy, as much as I want to go it is looking like we will not be able to.

Hey Gunner,
Do you remember my daughter Mary? I think she's going to be there. That broker Tighe Curran that she worked for some last year in St. Jo asked her to help him out. I don't know for sure but if I find out she's there, and you get there too, I'd appreciate it if you'd stop by and say hi to her.

Greg

Cool

Hi Irwinsailer,

Just found this thread unfortunately too late as well. Got to the show Friday with another buddy sailor on Lake Michigan. Have to ask - did you see my bottle of water! Paid three bucks for it, put it on a table at the first exibit and it dissapeared! If you have it I want it back! Just kidding of course, but three bucks - jeeze!
Great show though, eh. Only made it through 4 or 5 boats and sill didn't get through more than half the auditorium. Like a kid in a candy store with not enough cash and all the candy too big to fit in pockets!

Joe

We went through 4 boats on Thursday The Gozzard ,dehler.47, Jenneu 49 and Catalina morgan. Then it was off to the seminars.
We don't really go for the boats it is the seminars and gear that we look forward to seeing.
