Cobo boat show

Anyone going?

Don't give me this bullshit about "that boat show sucks", "It's not what it used to be" blah blah blah. It's spring, its getting warm, and I want to see some Fing boats.

Anyone else?

I've gone every year since the early 90's. Tuesday night is always the slowest so if you really want to deal or look closely at boats, that's the night. We actually discussed NOT going this year because we figured it would be downsized.

Oh, by the way, it's not what it used to be. It used to be really cool when they had 40 ft sailboats set up too. But, that was before you were born.

Honestly bill the boat show does really suck, there aint shit there anymore and it barely fills up the first floor of cobo, they will have one maybe two formulas, one maybe two baja ahahahaha's and a couple used boats, the rest will be pontoons, fishing boats, cruisers and a couple ski boats.

There is nothing wrong with that, but if I was going to go to a boat show I would go to Miami.
