Default What to take to AC boat show?

From a sales stand point, what would you think we would have more interest in? I am taking 3 pontoons regardless. But as for checkmate, I am torn between a 280zt or the new 250sfx fish boat. We move in this weekend and any help would be greatly appreciated. I am talking sales not just lookers.

Based on there being more fisherman than performance boaters, I'd bring the 250 SFX.

I know it sucks to say, but, I'd have to say the fishing as well.
If it was up to me , there would only be performance boats though..

Default Boats To Bring

See if you could bring both CHECKMATES by tilting them keel to keel.I've seen this done in tight booths before and I think that with 28 you would probably have the only high performance boat in the show.I'll see you at the show.

Drop a pontoon boat and bring a second Checkmate. The Jersey market has far demand for v-bottoms than pontoons.

You're in the business to sell boats. Take whats selling, even if that's taking all pontoons. Not all boat shoppers are HP boaters. And judging by the boats on the lakes, very few are anymore. But a varity is nice to offerr to the occasional odd ball.
