    Default Boat Show purchases???

    What did you buy? How was the deal?
    Have to "fess up"... went to the Show in Vancouver to look at electronics with a bunch of pre-show quotes in hand... and not alot of optimism about finding good deals. But I ended up saving a full $1000 on the following.... Raymarine C-80 package complete with Radome, fishfinder, transducer... Dickinson P9000 heater w/installation kit... and some odds n sods... For sure a worthwhile venture

    So you saved that much even after your travel expenses? That sounds like a good way to go. Hope you enjoy your new toys.

    Default Down?

    I have a friend that works for one of the dealers at the Anchors Aweigh show? When I asked how things went he said OK but sales were slow and customers tight fisted. He also heard that the Seattle show was down about 30%. I have no idea the validity of either statement, simply hear say.

    With aluminum price going up and gas prices up. Sales will reflect this.

    Thumbs up Down a Little.

    The show was definatly slow for the most part. -15 -20 deg most days did not help sales. It made a huge comback on Saturday and Sunday. Overall, I would say down about 30%.

    It will all balance out as prices for used boats will remain good. Then when used boats are sold the ex owners will buy new again.

    A little bird told me that AMDS did not sell any boats at all. I don't think that is possible, but does anyone know of any AMDS boat sales?
    Just curious.

    I bought a C-Dory 25 ft cruiser from Dan and he told me he sold 4 other boats and I think 3 of them were C-Dorys. So far it has been great working with Dan and I am to take the boat for a test spin in a few weeks!!! Can't wait!!!!
