Default Cute boat show sign

One of a dealer's biggest headaches in a show is controlling the kids without offending the parents. In Bham last week was the best I've seen "Unattended Children will be given an Expresso and a free puppy"

I've seen similar signs at shows and can't believe what some parents let their kids do.....I know my kids can cause havoc on new boats (in the way of potential buyers, making a mess, general commotion). I have always made my 3 boys remove their shoes and hold hands when going on boats at the shows. The 10 year old is getting to the point he'd rather not go on the boats if he has to hold someone's hand!

We would always just send the kids to play in the SailBoat section of the show?

Can be irritating though when you take your kids who have boated their whole life and help to make the boat purchase decisions, they take their shoes off waiting to check out the cabin of a sport boat while adults who have never boated before try to walk on the seats with their shoes, only to be told by the attendant at the booth that the kids can not go on!!! Let's see, my wife says from the movie Pretty Woman, "now you work on commission, right? Big mistake!" Too bad some disrespectful adults with children that have no knowledge or respect ruin it for young first mates like mine.
