  • Who's been to the Great AK Boat Show?

    Well I figured somebody would start this thread sooner or later, so I thought it might as well be me. Who's been there and how is it? Is Ron's Honda there with Stabi-Craft Boats? How about AK Inflatable, are they there? I'm going later this week, any new and particularly cool boats and/or equipment you would recommend looking at?

    Been there

    The wife and I got there this morning at about 10 am. Never been to the Alaska show before but was pretty small compared to the ones in the lower 48. We sure did like the 26' C-Dory that AMD had but a little pricey for what I was looking for. The wife ran into a co-worker who was working the Wooldrige booth and he sent us over to the Northway Mall to take a look at some of those used boats as well. Think we will wait out the economy and see if we can get a better deal in a month or 2.
    Over all it was uncrowded and pretty laid back downtown but would have liked to seen some more boats as there was alot of inflatables. Looked as if all the local vendors were there with thier goods.

      Stabi-Craft and Ak Inflatables were there.

      I was a bit disappointed by the show to be honest. I can`t be very subjective considering I`ve had the shakes to go for quite a while. There wasn`t the normal big selection of boats but a few were cool. Neat to see some Glacier Crafts, Wooldriges and the AK Inflatables. Anywho, It`s something to do while we wait for softer waters.

        Where is this show at? I know the Anchors Aweigh boat show at the Denaina (sp?) Center starts tomorrow, but wasn't aware of any others.

          Show started today Denaina:confused: and I guess has been going on at Northway for awhile. Northway just has some boats parked on the inside and you can't get in them, most if not all were used.

            Scratch that last question...I just went to akmining.com to look at their calendar and figured out that they're both the same show. For some reason I thought it was starting on Sunday instead of Saturday.

              Speaking of those stabi-craft...

              "Where's the potty?" was the first question that my daughter asked when we got on their cabin model. After inspecting the toilets of all the other boats she figured out that the measure of a great boat was the quality of the restroom.
              If it were up to her (and me) we'd have taken that 29ft Ranger Tug right off the showroom floor and plunked it in the water. Now if I only had a cool quarter million just laying around :rolleyes:...

                    Was much smaller than in the past or at least I thought so but something to do until summer. I did get to see the color of the new SJX I have on order so that was cool.

                            Just got back from the show and thought it was a lot nicer with the additional room compared to being cramped in to the Northway mall. There was a decent representation of boats to look at not sure if there were any good deals to be had since we were just window shopping.

                              $3 per person. Kids under 5 are free, and families of 4 get in for $10.
