Want to know where a good boat show happening is for the winter time? skiboat, performance, family, fishing type stuff.

The San Francisco boat show used* to be pretty neat, then it died. Is there any recommendations for norcal/ or southern

california?

Thanks!

People should post up shows here:

Autorama is coming up this month, they usually have a few boats...

then the Sac Boat and RV show comes up in march i think. Thats all production stuff.

then we have the Dave Lakotas Clear lake car and boat show August 12-14

If you're looking for high performance custom boats, the Lake Havasu Boat Show, April 8-10 in Lake Havasu State Park, Windsor 4 is your best bet. More high performance boat brands displaying there than any show west of Miami -- brands will include: Nordic (not going to L.A. this year), Howard, DCB, Eliminator, Hallett, Domn8er, Conquest, Caliber 1, Ultra, Shockwave, Interceptor, Cheetah, Advantage, LaveyCraft and Cobra. More info at Lake Havasu Boat Show

I guess I'd ask what kind of show are you looking for. You mentioned the SF show which makes me think you want to see new production boats available for sale. Back in the day, we used to go to the SF show every year, bought a couple boats there but like others have said, gone. The LA boat show was the baddest of them all and bought a Laveycraft there but I hear it's not as good anymore.
Now the Autorama, Billy B's and others are shows to see cool/fast boats though most are for sale (for the right price) :rolleyes:

RDP is talking about how your over here. What happened?

This is lower river and drag boat territory. Those guys think a porpoise is if there boat moves at all while on plane. They would freak out if they ever felt true acceleration.

Nothing really happened, just decided to take a break. There was a thread I thought was going to go sideways so rather than get mad and argue just decided to take a break. My second son was just born Tuesday so I've been pretty busy. Im sure I'll start posting again eventually. Some members just like to push my buttons and I'm in a different place now. No need to be the old vicious anymore

Oh, I wasn't talking about you. However, they are also talking about you posting over here too.

I like Dave, but many of the contributors tend to talk more crap than anything, but that's kinda what society is teaching these days...Yelp, facebook, twitter, etc.

I personally dropped Facebook and will probably take a break from everything else and focus that time on business. I kinda been slacking and enjoying spending time with family, but it's time to gear up and make more money for uncle sam. He wants half these days!
