Default Chicago Boat Show

Ducked out of work yesterday and went to show. Crap what a dissapointment

Got to spend a bit of time with Kurt from Konrad but rest of show was def low performance
Kept the Bullet and the condo and joined the cig 20 restoration club.

seems to be less and less power each year...i didnt bother going last year, nor will i this year.

Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy horsepower. And I've never seen a sad person hauling a$$!

We went today, not a single performance boat at all.
Totally lame. The RV's are fun to look at though.

L.A. Boat show coming up here in less than a month I think and was very weak last year. Will be interesting to see if more exhibitors and manufacturers show up this year with the ever so slight uptick in the economy.
