I'll also be at the show. Son has asked for some help; he has 5 boats in the show. Not sure yet which one I'll be on.

I've had to do that WAAAAAY to many times, lol.
Prefer to just do a casual stroll and chat with my vendors and factory reps that I deal with during the work year.


It just won't be the same not being on Halloween weekend though, trying to work the show after some of the crew parties, lol.

Last years Poker Run was a blast, hope same for this year.

I guess there is an advantage to having shoes the size of clown shoes - nobody wants them. Surely it's not my fashion choices.

I'll be there... with bells on. The Admiral will be up in New Bern visiting daughter and grandbaby, so I'll be on my own. Scary thought

We will be there Fri & Sat. Great excuse for a short trip out of town and leave the kids with the grandparents for the weekend.

If you see Oliver let me know if he's wearing brown leather boat shoes with gel insoles. Thanks.

Wifey B: Hope Oliver doesn't take my shoes. He'll look quite cute though. Or maybe he'd like heels. Or he could steal hubbies shoes but then he would look clownish. Guess he can stuff enough paper into a size 13

The latest Riviera mag tells me Riviera( aka Riv) have sent 4 big shiny new Rivs to the Show. Essentially high powered cruisers with planing ability, they operate fine at trawler speeds and have a reputation for good build quality and longevity. Just a matter of accepting the acres of white gelcoat, and wondering how they get 1/8" of glossy varnish on the interior woodwork.

Wifey B, high heeled Topsiders?

I was going to try to avoid it but Canada Metal asked me to sell their anchors again. My buddy Darrel is going to man the booth but I guess I'll have to go up for some of it.
