Post Chicago Boat Show

Hey all,
It's been a few years (probably 5 or so) since I went to the Chicago show.

Anyone go last year or year before? What brands of OS boats should one expect to see? Any particular things to watch for? read about there may be a 40 Outlaw there in the Baja section. Any other cool stuff anyone might know of?

Mark

Been going for at least the last 6 years. Always a good showing

Cigarette had two sweet boats.
Powerquest usually has 6 boats
Baja has at least 6
Scarab/Wellcraft had a nice 33'
Sunsation usually 3-4 boats
Black Thunder
Formula usually 4-5 boats
Sonic had two boats last year
A few Checkmates
Usually 4-5 nice Fountains

.........and I am sure I forgot a few but you get the idea. We usually go on Friday to beat the crowds.

Jeff

Thanks 500! Should be cool.

Velocity...man, you going to the show? That's a haul still from Marquette. That's like me going to Miami! LOL! You can probably hit Perf marine in WI on your way in or out, too. And any other places. You're coming down in cheese country aren't ya?

Sounds like there will be enough go-fast to justify the trip. Great!
