How about high heeled swim fins?

Latest listing shows them with 6 boats there-a 47' SUV, 56' SUV, 56' Fly, 60' SUV, 60' Fly, and a 63' Sport Yacht. All with Volvo IPS.

Deleted the Riv mag so can`t check the number. 2 could be from an indirect source, or it could have been 6, either way 6 Rivs sent all that way is a lot of boats. All the more remarkable considering Riv had a " near death experience" post GFC.
Is Maritimo ( current brand of Bill Barry-Cotter a prior owner who started Riv) exhibiting? Expect similarities.

That`s impressive. I`m always amazed when, with our wage structure, we can make something and sell in into overseas markets. Are the boats really price competitive or do they fill a gap in the market?

Day one visit the Feadship display on the face dock and get one of their straw hats. They have plastic tubes full of hats on the side of the tent. Straw style sun hats with a Feadship band. Missed those hats 2 years in a row.

Still a good question... Sat or Sun? I'm coming down one of the days, and would love to meet everybody.

For those that are either/or, is there a consensus?

There are one or two adult beverage tents at the show. If I recall correctly, one is near the trawler area. What if we met there around 4:00 on sat and staked out an area?
