Seattle Boat and Afloat Show

Seattle Boat and Afloat show Ė Jan 24 to Feb 3. The show is at Quest Field south of Seattle city center and the Afloat is at the south end of Lake Union. The ticket covers both the show and the afloat, with free shuttle buses running every Ĺ hour between the two. The Afloat is for 30+ ft boats in the water, so itís great to compare bands/models/sizes. The Show is mostly boat under 30 ft and hundred of venders. Passagemake magazine and the boat show have talks/seminaries, most are free, during the boat show. Great for newbies/wantabees and boaters ready to take the next level/step.

We'll be down there the first Saturday. We always meet as a large group and do breakfast, and then dinner at Daniels Broiler after the Boats Afloat portion. Always a great way to spend a Saturday.

Yessir- I'll be there! Might even have you and Doug over after dinner to take a look at our boat......we're moored about a mile from Daniel's on Westlake Ave N., just past China Harbor.

As luck would have it, I'm off work the duration of the show! I'm planning my seminar strategy now - there are a lot of good offerings. Looks like I'll be buying the 4 course + 5 day package. Anyone wanna rent me their couch?

There are not many restaurant in that area serve breakfast. However, there is a lot of new construction, which is the reason we moved. The SLUT, South Lake Union Transit was the last straw. I was wondering if there were some new ones in that area. There is a new Irish Pub, use to be the Blue Water that you might want to try? I don’t think they due breakfast, brunch maybe?

That is not very close. The south end of Lake Union use to have some cheaper places to eat, Burger King, Denneyís, TGIF and others, until Paul Allen bought up the south end. Most places can not afford the south end. Most Saturday morning we eat at the Everett, IHOP, but I have to get the laundry and grocery shopping done, so itís usually about 10:00 before I can get away. My wife had surgery on her right heel/ankle, which still bothering her, and she walks like a drunken sailor, so she probable will not go. Actually that is good in a way as she keeps looking at the 65 ft Pacific Marine and they are coming down in price!

However, would like to meet some of you for a brief face to face if possible. For those of you out of towners, drop an email as I would be more than happy to spend some time. I will take you to eat at one of our family owned Restaurants. No waiting for the old man and we eat free!

We do breakfast at IHOP... head over to the CLINK for the Boat Show and then drive up to Lake Union for the Afloat portion. We gather at Daniel's for a fat steak afterward. It'd be great to meet some folks.

Cmon, Phil- it's not THAT far! Besides, it's good to get out of your comfort zone

Off topic, but how'd they adverstize that, uh, yeah, "service"?

"Come ride the......."
"You'll love the ......."


I'm bad. I know.
