Default Grand Rapids and Detroit boat show ?

Can anybody tell me if the Grand Rapids or Detroit boat shows are worth going to? I was sick for the Chicago show and didn't make that one. I'm wanting to check out Baja, Fountain, Formula, Nordic, Powerquest, Sonic and Velocity boats in the 27' to 30' range.

The Detroit show was disappointing last year. Minimal Offshore boats, No Cig's that I can remember. GR, don't know. Need the left coasters from the "mitten state" to answer.

Detroit usually has, powerquest, formula, and nordic. This year fountain should be there, cause shogren opened up a place over here. Sunsation. I doubt any velocity's and sonics though. So for what you're looking for it may be worth while.

Velocity was ther 3-4 years ago, but not recently.

Yes that did. Thanks a lot. I think I may just have to go now I recognized some of the dealers names.
