Definitely worth it. I went for the first time 2 years ago with the strict intention of finding foulies, which I'd been pricing and trying on for a while. Saved about $100 on a mix of Helly Hansen and Gill gear
, which are more comfortable than WM brand and have held up extremely well. Then last year, I got near wholesale price
on B&G MFD and radar
, comparable to what Garmin
was selling. Again, this was what I specifically went to the show for and had been pricing the different units for a while. This year I'll be looking at a mast
climber (for sure) and maybe a new controller for the autohelm
. There's a lot of stuff to tantalize. You should do your homework before you go and have a good sense of the different brands and prices. Depending on what and how much you buy, you might also be able to negotiate even better prices with the vendor.
