Default Houston-Worlds largets boat show????

On the news they just said that the 5000+ boat show in Houston this week is the "Worlds Largest"

Where do they get this info??? Bernard, the GM from Marine Max, was on TV saying they had everything from jetskis to 52 ft yachts. Mostly little ski and fish boats...

I guess when they say world they really mean Houston

How many boats does Miami usually have?

How many boats do they usually have? Here the biggest is 52' which is a fraction of the biggest at some of the shows I have seen....I guess I am just irritated since I know it's B.S. when the media does this kind of stuff.

So Bruce Bullock is'nt even at the show this year? He is the one that always brings the coolest stuff.

But if he does'nt make any sales then it is'nt worth his time.

captdave is right, I looked for Bullock marine, guess what he's not there, only had a few Formula's, and a lot of Baja's from Marine Max, did get to look at the new 30outlaw they had, but the show was a joke, the pershing 52 was a cool boat [for a cruiser] other than that the show was a waste of my time

I think the Ft. Lauderdale show has the most value, and the largest boats (over 200'), but Miami clearly wins when it comes to high performance.
