It is going down hill but like Bruce says its just the market in our area...I just drove by Darryl Moore on 45N and most of their ski boats are gone...The 353 is still in the window. Marine Max took their Outlaws down there already and only have the BIG cruisers and a few bow riders on their showroom...

Have you seen how Marine Sports has a big For Sale sign up?? They still have some stock so I guess they are selling the business and not the lot

I'll probably go, but the show is getting worse. I remember when they boat show here used to be about boats. Now it seems the show is all about junk to have on the boat. Mostly fishing stuff and very little if anything to do with offshore. The same boats are gonna be there. there are gonna be 2 - 3 skaters if we are lucky. Maybe American offshore will go to the show, that would be an improvement over last year.

It's never been real good.

I liked it a few years back when they had the BIG yellow 47 Fountain.

I'm sure I will go.........

Houston's show sucks more every year, but I will still go next week.

I think I will go this Saturday and will also probably be there one evening during the week to sit at the Power Squadron booth.
