The Portland Boat Show starts in just a few days and as always I am looking forward to going.  This is the largest off-the-water show west of the Mississippi and features 360,000 square feet of all things fun on, in or under the water.  It’s rather like a one stop shop and play till you drop event.  Plan on attending the 48th Annual Portland Boat Show.

Come on aboard! The Portland Boat Show is making waves this January 5 – 13, 2008. Whether you are looking to buy up, trade in or become a first time buyer, this is the place to be. Attended by tens of thousands of boating enthusiasts from all over the Northwest and beyond, this Show offers hundreds of makes and models, accessories and plenty of expert advice through seminars and hands on demonstrations.

My hubby (aka Dock Ape Idiot) and I will be representing The Rose City Yacht Club for a few hours on Sunday late morning/early afternoon, if you’re visiting the show then, please be sure to stop by and say hi!  We will be visiting the show later in the day and look forward to scoring some great new gear.  Our daughter is hoping for a surf board so we’ll be looking for that while we’re there.

This year instead of a coupon The Portland Boat Show will be offering free parking weekdays of the show.  The free parking will be from January 7 – 11 ONLY!!!.  This is a $7 value.
