Since everyone else is popping in with their schedules i will too, not, nada, zip. We don't get one! Guess they don't see the value in a down market for a show in the greater San Francisco Bay Area! Weenies. :mad:

I am going to the show at the Staple Center in Los Angeles. I really hope that it is better than it was last year. Last year, we were in and out in 1 hr. Usually there are two floor full of stuff Upstairs, was all the boats and downstairs was all the vendors. This past year, there was only about a dozen or so vendors. two of them being the time share crap.

Every spring here in the parking lot of the grocery store they have what I have named "The Fishin' Boat Show". It's very exciting. Why, one year, they had as many as 20 boats there.

^^I'd be ok with that. oogling over any boat is nice, even if it's one I won't ever own..

ours is the weekend of feb. 12th. don't expect much out of it. one of the big 3 ski boat dealers here locally-gilbert lake marine(nautique/tige) went under and the other 2 have reduced inventories so much that they won't have much to see/buy. the large whitewater dealer(customweld and supreme) went out as well. they always had a huge display.
I see it being a mastercraft/pontoon boat show with a few other boats sprinkled in for show..

I'll still be there though :)

I have a feeling we're all in for dissapointment at this years boat shows. No buyers, means probably no cool new boat models to drool over.
