Vancouver Boat Show 2013
The Vancouver Boat Show has for years been one of my all time favourite events. This year was no different. I love the opportunity to look inside the bigger boats and see the layouts. I love too all the paraphernalia that boaters enjoy. Having been boating for decades I've just about got everything I could hope for on my sailboat except perhaps a helicopter. What I did find again this year was Kits Inflatable advances in tenders. Every type of boat, sailboats, motor boats, launches, tugboats, kayaks were there though. At Granville Island there was a further display of big boats at the dock. I walked by there. There's no better place to see big boat interiors and compare. This year I was more interested in the small boats. I loved the McGregor as always, the best light coastal sailboat motorboat ever made. I did go into that and think that if I didn't have my own bigger sailboat this would be the most fun for weekends. Some of the tug boat variations were impressive as well. It really is a place to dream. A place of deals to. Over the years I've had amazing savings on offshore sailing gear, radars, and radios. I confess I like the people at the boat show. We all like the water. I happen to think water people are special.
