Default Went to Chicago Show

Was in town on business went to the show last night. Being from New England it was nice to see Eliminators ( this months powerboat cover boat), Sunsation, Nordic, Black thunder, NorTech and of course Baja and the new Cobalt was there. It was nice being a thursday night no lines and easy to get on the boats. Really liked that Black thunder.

Oh yeah and of course the guy selling Mops, Knifes and magic tape.

Glad to hear you enjoyed the show. I have no choice but to fight the crowds this year and attend on Saturday. Any details on the fun-go fasts? Nortech and Black Thunder???? What did Eliminator bring???

And yes, I particularly like the vendor area...my favorite the last couple years is the guy with the flint stick thingy majiggy that you can strike a quarter on it and it will spark at 10 trillion degrees to start your fire or something.

MnFastboat...now that's a scary thought. If you've ever seen them before they are extremely small and I think they are made of magnesium or something...a cool invention and the booth he has set-up is funny as he sets small fires all the time as his demonstration.

FIRE, FIRE, FIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fountain had the 42 and 29 along with 38 express. Nortech had the 38 cat and powerquest had a razor. I was surprised no sonic or Checkmate.
The new sunsation 32 with center steering was also on display.
