This is the first year we ever been to the boat show when we really didn't need anything.
We were going just to buy a new refrigeration system. While in Washington, DC we ended up buying it cheaper from a distributor than we could have gotten it at the boat show.
That was the only reason we were going but since we had budgeted the time we sailed down the Potomac and up to Annapolis for the show. We had a great time just running the aisles with friends. It even enabled us to head out during the show to get a jump on the trip south.
