Default Tampa / St. Pete Area

I have to go to Tampa for work. I would like to look at some boats while I'm there. Other than Suncoast Powerboats and the Donzi plant, what other places should I visit?
I'm sure there are quite a few dealers / shops in the area.
Thanks for any input.

They aint go fast's but Stamas will give you a pretty involved tour if you stop by their factory in Tarpon Springs. Realy nice people and realy nice boats. My father has owned 3 of them. We were suppost to go fishing one day about two years ago and the forecast got ugly the night before, we decided to take a ride down to Stamas and see if they had any knda tour. They secertary said not realy but asked us to wait in the front for a minuit. About 5 minuits later a guy comes out and introduces himself as George. He spent about 4 hours showing us around the place and letting us climb around in boats that were being built, When we were done he handed us each a card and said if we ever needed any info or assistance with my fathers current Stamas (32 sedan sportfisher) that we should give him a call. The name on the card was George Stamas. The owner took four hours out of his day to humor two fisherman oin a stormy day, how cool is that ?

A few hot boat dealers down in Ft. Myers, but that's about 2 plus hours south on I-75.

I scheduled an extra day in the trip. What are some of the dealers in the Ft. Myers area?
Thanks
