San Francisco Boat Show Postponed

The SFO Boat Show was scheduled for this weekend at McCovey Cove but has been postponed until April 29-May 1 due to rains! I find it hard to believe that the 1.33 inches of rain SF received in the first week of 2016 has caused the postponement. The rain season to date (since July) sits at 74% for the city on the bay.

Does anyone know the story behind the story? Maybe the event planner got caught unprepared or under-supported by the industry? I'd sure love to know the truth.

Maybe they finally realised that few people have boating on their mind in the winter.
Our boat show is coming up and they always complain about the poor turnout. Personally, I'm more interested in skiing than boating at this time.
April - May sounds like a good idea.

But we can (and many of us do) boat year round here in NorCal. Granted, there's lots to distract one from boating anytime of year.

The show was postponed due to storm-induced surge at McCovey Cove. Either they couldn't get the docks set up in time or it was simply too rough to move boats in.
