    Hi AKBassKing,

    We had an Alaska Series booth at the Miami boat show. It's always surprising how many people from Alaska come all that way to say hello. Maybe it's because Miami is a pretty nice place to visit in February. LOL

    We both got sun burned! We visited for two days, 10 hours each day and still didnít see it all!

    There were also 3 Alaskan Charters there trying to drum up some clients. One from Southeast, Homer and Kodiak.

    I talked to a friend who works for Suzuki and he said the boat show out come was very sad. The boat manufactures that are still in business are very concerned that if the show was any indication they are worried about an industry collapse.

    The Seattle boat show has a pretty low turn out too.

    We seemed about as busy at the Miami boat show as last year. I'm glad I'm just a small guy in the Inflatable Boat business! This year I added another dealer in Washington state, one in Juneau and 2 new dealers in Florida. It's easy to grow when you're a small guy, even in a recession. I'm sure Zodiac's sales nation wide are taking a hit simular to the rest of the Marine industry.


    Good Boating
