It is sounding like the Overland Park boat show is the place to be tomorrow, (Saturday).
In fact, by Saturday afternoon, you won't be able to swing a dead cat by the tail without smacking an OSO member. I know there are quite a few going to the show early, then EVERYONE is meeting at "Johnny's" on 119th street, just east of old Metcalf, then after drinks and a quick bite, back to the show.
And yes, I GOT OFF DUTY FOR THE DAY !!!! Woohoo!
Looking forward to seeing everyone there.
Now, about that vaccuum thingie...

Default OP Boat Show

Went last night (Thurs) to the show. Will go back Saturday to follow up on some things.
The new center is larger which has allowed more room between each display. There are a couple of new dealers and dock builders there including Ozark Barge's Gene Genniton's display of his floating breakwater. Way cool! Only $320 a running foot, yikes, only need about 100'.
Lots of cruisers, water bikes, etc. Not too much of the performance boats this year. Couple of the new Profiles, small Fountain, couple of Formulas, several sizes of Envisions, 2 Eliminator cats, small Baja's , Sunsation 28?. bow rider Donzi and some others. Was there trying to help my neighbor buy his first boat (family). The dealers are making some good deals especially on the big stuff. Check out Kelly's new Caranci (sp). Very nice cruiser with Volvo Diesels/outdrives upper 40mph < $270000.

We'll be there on Sat afternoon and then Johnnie's late afternoon.

Can anyone tell me why they're calling it the "MIDWEST COAST BOAT SHOW" I've been in Kansas my entire life and have yet to locate the coast...

The Mrs and I will be there sometime in the afternoon. I'd wear my OFO t-shirt except I wore it out last summer.
Gordo, watch it when you swing that dead cat!

Default Vacuum thingie

Is that a Bentford turbo charged high output super suction double bagging shop vac, as shown on Home Improvement! My wife says no lipos when she down there, although you do have the right shop vac. She said she will be intoxicated. She would hate to suck out size in the wrong place.
