Default Anybody make it to the Chicago boat show?

We had plans to go but my wife and I were sick. Was wanting to check out Baja, Formula, Fountain Nordic Powerquest, Sonic and Velocity in the 27' to 30 range. Wanted to see the 290SC Velocity to see how much space you have with a 8'-2" beam compared to the 8'-6" beam boats.
Hope someone went that can post pictures.

I went. I kinda liked the 35 Nordic and especially liked the MitcherT paint scheme on that boat.

I was there Sunday. Snapped a few pics which I will post tonight. Typical Chicago show--Lots of smaller boats and Toons. Seems to be getting better with the performance stuff little by little. The local Baja dealer had a nice display and he had one Cig. He also has Sunsation and Sonic but I didn't really look at them much. I mainly went to talk to the guys from C.O.P.S. . I spent about an hour there. I will be joining their club this year.

I did the same thing as the rest went to smell some new fiberglass and get to know the C.O.P.S. boys I'll be joing the crue to. After seeing some of the videos I hope the 32 AT is big enough, man that 50 nor tech is bad azz!!!
