No way..stay home unless your absolutely amazed by (1) 382 Fastech and (2) 42 Lighteninig. The few custom bikes were better than the boats!

Thanks Gary. You guys pretty much made up my mind for me. I'll stay home and just mess with my boat.

problem with the show is they are booked with all the small boats, hoists, and dock guys that we cant get the hot looking performance boats in there. I've tried for a year to get space for a couple of cool nortechs and a venom 32, but they are sold out. they need to realize people want to see the new technology, cool paint jobs, and diferent boats.

They haven't had a good show for a long time. I would love to see a few Nortechs. That's just something you don't get to see everyday on the Mississippi River.

I agree I would also like to see new things but we are going for a fun weekend Have several beers and hang down on the landing so why not go and make the best of it. Plus what else is there to do this time of year, I can have a beer in my hand and look at some fiberglass, even if it is not what I would like to look at. I believe St Louis should do a two week show, one week have fishing boats and pontoons and then the second week have some fun boats for people to look at JUst my .02

I think Raymond's had the same Fountains this year as last year. Maybe Miami next year.

Me and a couple of friends are leaving Springfield IL tomorrow and heading down. I would have to agree with PWRQWST. I'm not going just for the show. Its the drinking and partying in St. Louis with a boat show in the winter. The question is would someone smear the ink on a new nortech at the show?
