I like AC. I can take the train right into the convention center. No traffic , no parking , no bull$h1t Plus past years you got a discount with you train ticket amounting to the price of the train .

I agree with the others...nice way to spend the day

not a whole lot of go fast boats. like years ago. When you had Cig, Powerplay, Baja, Fountain, Formula,

Now I think it caters more to the fisherman, overnighters, and day cruisers. Lots of accessories too.

it will take all day too. especially if you start buying stuff

The was no lines for the rest rooms in the sailboat area Some guy mistook me for some dude who had sailed around the world singlehandedly I was feeling good from all that beer and played along for quite a while : He must think that sailer guy is a complete idiot :

If for nothing else, it will be worth being around boats, in a warm building and dreaming of next boating season... and maybe running into some fellow OSO-ers in the process...

I just took a demo ride on the new Predator 95 yesterday. They were doing donuts with the yacht at 34 knots. It handled like a high performance powerboat. I was absolutely floored.
