With the sun shining brightly following the sloppy weather of last Friday, I decided to give the summer a jumpstart with a trip to the 4th Annual Greenwich In-Water Boat Show, held at Beacon Point Marine in Cos Cob, Connecticut. The all-powerboat show comprised 9 regional dealers and the 16 boat manufacturers they represent.
While most shows in the region are held in the fall or winter, the Greenwich event hopes to capitalize on the spring-fever experienced by boat buyers at this time of year. There are no tents or booths selling electronics or fishing gear; the boats are the sole attraction. All models at the Greenwich show are in the water and available for sea-trials throughout the weekend. I know of no other show that offers this.
