So I guess that means there are no fast boats being sold in Oklahoma!!

I go every year and it is the same thing. I don't know why I continue to go to a boat show that has no boats I'm interested in. Never again!

Now, for all you E-Dockers out there, is the Grand Lake boat show any better?
The only way to scratch the itch for performance boats at a boat show is to go to Miami. Ft. Lauderdale show would be my second choice, but that is in the fall.

Funny thing while, visiting "the other site" during the downtime... They said the Tulsa Show is one of the best.. hmm.
Here's a better idea. Save your show money and visit Nor-Tech. We have a boat show every day and I'll buy the beer*. Think of the savings!

* Some restrictions apply.

You have to figure that go-fasts are a big of a seller during a show. I'd be willing to bet that most people there are not non-boaters looking to become boaters, so bow riders and bass boats probably sell good during and after the show.

However....It's a good reason to get together with your boating buds during the winter and have a few drinks.

Exactly, I think it is simple economics. Boat shows have been around a long time. If perf. boats made up the sales volume, that's what they would be showing.

Look at your average marina. What % of the boats are performance? At my marina I'd say maybe 10% tops.
