I would have to agree with you on the vendor attendance. I think that the houseboat remodeling sector is very untapped there was a houseboat manufacture at the show that was selling some of his old lighting and I bought 10 led lights from him for my boat at a great deal. I would like to see these guys start selling there "dead inventory" at the shows it would help them and us (the ones who buy old and remodel) Gibson has started to sell there inventory on line but there is a lot of room for improvement. Why was summerset not at the show that was the one manufacture that I thought would be at the show?
It was my understanding that Summerset and Fantasy, and maybe others, went to a Louisville Boat Show two weeks earlier. It was too costly to go to both shows. That is why I think that these OEM's should support the show with the consumers that support them. You would think that would be a no-brainer.
Will change my name to Casting Away
