    Default Portland Boat Show

    So.... Did anyone go to the PBS?? It was the fist time in forever I didn't participate or attend. How was the show for being 1/2 the size and 1/2 the days??

    Rob...

    Pretty light, got to go to the "Pre-bash" thanks to Warren at Active.

    saved $20 going in but spent it back in Beer!

    Because you and CDBA were a No Show ( as was Tim from OCM) the ONLY
    "performance " boats there were the Formulas.. It was heart breaking!
    Defir was in the main bldg with a few oldies this time but, no Pacific, no
    draggers or OCM, it was tough to see. Lots of Aluminum Hulls and lots of towers.

    Happy New Year Dave. I should have gone to the pre-bash. Had a invite, but didn't seem right after pulling out of the show. With the show getting smaller they wanted us to be in the ticket lobby in a 10X10 booth. No boat, just showing videos and handing out schedules. Hope things turn around for next year, with some of the bigger dealers going out, it really put a crimp in the space.

    Did you go out on NYD or did you stay "RETIRED" ??
    We went to CFW and had a blast.

    Saw your post that you went down.. looked like fun ( as usual)

    We were in PDX- launched early- Skiid as fast as she would go for about 3 or 4 laps- passed the mighty 3 boat pack coming up river on one pass- went all the way to the Sellwood turned around and caught 'em..

    It was pretty fun until it rained so stinkin hard that we couldnt see squat.. We lasted about 40 min or so.. Usual suspects were there, you didnt miss much. C'mon SPRING, Im ready!

    We are still here! I hope we can get this boat show back on track. Oregon custom marine will be at the Seattle boat show. (Ten fun days) This show has more fiber glass/carbon fiber then metal.

    Also look for our Spring open house party at OCM. (MARCH)
