Today was the half price ticket and parking day at the Houston Boat Show. It was also lame too.
I've never seen so many center console fishing boats, bass boats, and ski boats in my life.
A local NorTech dealer had a cigarette hull offshore center console fishing boat plus a 36' cigarette style with 600SC's and the local Donzi dealer had a weird 38' bow rider, center cabin, with 8.2 mags.
They were the only Go-Fasts represented.
There were also some nice display engines, the 900SC and EFI 525 looked sweet, but there was no salesman or literature to be found.

Here's a couple of pic's of these boats and the engines/drives.
















It was a shame that my POS camera out of my work truck wouldn't focus for $hit trying to take pic's.
Truthfully, I go every year to fill out the entries for the free boats they give away today and tomorrow, for beer, and for all the free junk like Koozies and writing pens.
I've given up on them being good again.
I'm with you guys, Miami would be tasty.

Later,
Kelly

The market destroyed the average boat show, lets face it, if you are going to look at a boat to buy, most guys looking for high end performance boats know where to go, they don't need a show..... if they do it's Miami.... but the average person can buyy what they see at the smaller shows...

I'll be headed to Miami also (Save the ticket price of the Cleveland show for some beer!) . I'm staying at my sisters pad on Hollywood beach. If anyone wants to meet up that weekend or go to the show, I may be by myself on Friday. Let me know.

The first Saturday always seemed to be when the casino crowd was there... Not sure this year...
