Default Dallas Boat Show

Well.....um....IT SUCKED

Fountain had a 42executioner and a 35lightning, Donzi had a 38zx and the new 35zr. Baja had 18 boats there and that was it. I was really hoping we would have some cigs there since we have a new dealer, but i guess not. Mastercraft stole the show this year

That show SUCKED!! We spent 2 hours there... that was way too much time! Eliminator had 4 or 5 boats there... other than what lonestar said, THAT WAS THE SHOW! As many lakes that we have in Texas... you think Dallas would have a better show. Hey... But the $4 beer was cold

The year before last I think it was, Fountian didn't even show. Last year was better but sounds like what you guys are describing. Plenty of pleasure/ski/pontoon boats and express cruisers. Never seen anything but Fountain, Donzi, Baja and Eliminator there and not a real big showing, except maybe Baja.

I'll probably go with a group next weekend jsut to run through and maybe say hello to a few folks we usually only see during the show. ANd that beer may be cold, but I don't remember it being any good.

I agree, went yesterday and not much to look at, way too many kids running around! My fiance is in love the little chris-craft speedster, may have to pick one of those up later this summer. Derebery had some sweet motors on display.

Agreed... a little dissapointing. I drove down from Oklahoma trying to shake some winter blues. Had a good visit with Derebery that made it worth the trip. For seeing go-fast boats it beats the Tulsa show.

I forgot about eliminator and Derebery. The only thing I would have really liked to have seen that i didn't was the big Sunseeker Manhattan, but the line was 45mins+ while I was there
