THE GIRLS HANDING OUT THE APACHE POSTERS WERE SWEET. BUT IF YOU LOOK FOR QUALITY, POWER PLAY WAS ON TOP. THE BOATS WERE FLAWLESS.THE POWER PLAY WILL NOT RUN 160MPH, BUT IT HAD NO DIRT OR RUNS IN THE PAINT. IT'S NOT MASS PRODUCED LIKE A LOT OF THE OTHERS. THE QUALITY OF THE DRAGON WAS ALSO VERY GOOD.

I honestly have to say that the folks at Cigarette stood out the most, they really took things to a new level, their designs, paint jobs, interior designs, and attention to detail in the engine compartment were very impressive.
The special edition 188th street Top Gun was a cool tribute to the legendary street, and creator Don Aronow.

My next favorate was the Turbine powered Nortech
Hustler also made a nice presentation by thinking out of the box a little bit with SPARCO race seats and well laid out electronics.
Outerlimits was impressive with their awesome paint work and even more impressive new V bottom speed record
The Dragon was very impressive, the design and complete layout were different and innovative, sitting in the cockpit was like being behind the wheel of a sports car with a long hood I can only imagine how impressive the boat performs on the water.
MTI was the final one that stands out in my mind.

Anyway who am I to be a critic, but for my first time going to the show I thought the whole thing was impressive, I can't wait for next year

I hope everyone who attended had as much fun as I did, what a weekend, I am still just trying to catch up on my sleep

I'm reading the question to be, what MANUFACTURER impressed me the most, not what boat. In that category, it has to be one of the following:

- Fountain - courteous and helpful sales people, prices posted, and a lot of boats inside
- Formula - sales people at the convention center were courteous. They had more boats "in the water" than anyone, and it wasn't that hard to get a ride on one.
- Eliminator - talked with them for about an hour.

I'll give Fountain my vote. Best deal at the show was there new 42' Executioner for @$250K.
