Default just got back from NYC Javits show-WTF

Show stunk,,, no performance boats,,the Mercury display only had bravos displayed and a few outboards and the Miss Geico I think was a fake the motor wasnt even bolted in ,,really disappointed..and worst of all.. took half hour to get a beer...

The NY show hasnt been good since the early 2000's. Even then there was only a handfull of performance boats. Miami is the only show to go to.

Thank you for the heads up. After looking online on what boat brands would be their we decided not to go this year, acutally havent gone in quite a few years. Few years back they didn't have a ton of performance boats but they did have Baja, Fountain, Cigarette, and I think Donzi.

Just got back myself and I'm also disappointed. Don't get me wrong, the azimuts were awesome (despite the hour long line) and I really liked the formulas, but not a single performance boat. Kind of a let down...oh well. On the bright side, got a new VHF radio and stereo system for a good price

The 400SS grows on me more and more every year... I had a great conversation with Scott Porter. They did a great job of saving the company over the last few years, and are looking forward to better days soon. The pricing deals they were offering were incredible.
