    I am planning on going, but I am not sure when. My admiral just gave birth to our daughter, so she won't be up for the trip, and she might dictate when I can get out.

    Went to the show last night. It was OK... Only one new cruiser from Sea Ray there. The others were pre-owned. There was only one Rinker in the crowd. It was a 2014 276 Bow Rider that was a new/left over boat. The rest of the boats were open bows and pontoons. The group that organizes the show needs to get it back to the convention center downtown. Then again, they aren't that motivated...

    Greg, that's disappointing, we are going tomorrow, were there many vendors there?

    There was about 7 or 8 dealers. Fox Chapel being the biggest. They had a nice display and the had a mock up of the new South Side Marina that they are building by the Hofbrauhaus. Be sure to stop by the BoatLocal booth and get a coozie from Terry. The old wooden boats were cool to look at as well.

    I just went to the Minneapolis boat show..not much there unless your in the market for a pontoon or jet boat.  There were about 5 brands that usually are there that were not including Rinker.
