Yea, they chose to NOT use that acronym once it was pointed out to them - Go Figure.

One thing to keep in mind is that the bus between the main part and the Boats Afloat part stops running at dark (I recall the last departure from Lake Union is around 5 PM) since that part of the show closes much earlier that the rest.

I guess the particular TrawlerFest you go to determines you impression, the one I went to in Anacortes a few years ago was not that impressive to me but then again I was not actually in the market for a new trawler at that time. There were not that many other vendors there.

Between the two the Seattle Boat show in January is, in my opinion, far better that the Boats Afloat (by itself) in September or the Anacortes TrawlerFest in May.
