I remember it well. I believe it was April 1988. At the time I was making great $$$ peddling Snap On Tools and had a few buck burning a hole in my pocket.
I had just ordered a new Baja Sport 220 w/454 Mag from Performance Marine (Oxford MA) but fell in love with the 23 Warlock and a rather buxom model named Jolie The Warlock was rather pricey for the day, 32k if I remember correctly but I wanted it badly. I actually went back to the show twice in one day and went back one more time a day or two later. By then a friend of mine from Essex Ma. bought the Warlock. I think he still has it to this day..unless it's the one you now own.
Yes, there were some incredible boats there. Middlesex Power & Marine (Tewksbury MA) had a bad ass all yellow blown 12 Meter Fountain, Banana Boats was there and a great display of Eliminator and Cole jets and clip-on's from Performance Boats of New England (Hookset, NH) I also remember a very trick 24 Superboat with big power. I believe they were asking 65k or something. That was large money for a 24' boat back then.
Yup, great show and I still have some of the brochures gathered from that show. Too bad all of the above dealers are long gone!
