Boatoberfest boat show, October 24 - 27

There is a small boat show going on this weekend at Marine Max… From Thursday thru Sunday. In water and apparently around 100 small vendors.

I was curious how big or small the event was going to be. The promoters are the same people that do the Boat Show over at South Shore Harbor. So it may be bigger than you(we) are expecting.

Cool. If you would, post up on this thread with a report after you go on Thursday. I am out of town until Saturday and may not be able to make it until Sunday. I am not gonna bust my butt to get there if it is not worth it.

Well, the weather was good, the boat show....not so much. About a 1/4 of the size of the "Houston" boat show. They had some end of season deals, food was good and beer was cold. Parking sucked! $10.00 entry fee. That Mainship was there with the stern all folded out ($248K). The boats were on the North side of West Marine and the booths etc on the South side.

If you have absolutely nothing to do Sunday....but I can't 'recommend' it.

It was smaller than the SSH show by a bit. Nothing much new, usual vendors, waste of $10 for me. They are getting so many of these "little" boat shows around, I think they'll implode after a couple of years. Between the consumers not coming, and the expense of all these shows for the vendors, I think maybe one will survive, but the rest will collapse.
