    Hey Rob, do you know what the cost is to get into the boat show? I might show up if I'm not a walking zombie... (working a string of midnights during those dates!)

    Ok, so I went to the Ottawa Boatshow and met the boataddict himself! I have a few pictures to share of the show. I am definately no photographer, but thought I'd share what I did take! Especially the PWC pictures!

    A few general thoughts of the show to the PWC companies if they read this;

    Honda - I understand that there is only one model of your PWC available in Canada (F15X), but seriously... no brochures, or flyers to offer people in the show? I know I could find all this info on the internet, but I was hoping to see a little bit more to promote the fine products you make!

    Kawasaki - Where were you?! I don't think they attended!

    Yamaha - Showing off a very slick looking FX SHO... Lotsa flyers and brochures and free lanyards and chapstick!!! Yamaha had a small presence in the show, but they did a good job promoting their products in my opinion.

    Seadoo - Definately the biggest and best product displays. I'm not sure how many ski's they had on display, but I believe they had all their 3 seater models at the show. I would have liked to see some 2 seater models but for whatever reason, they didn't have any on display. Something I noticed that was a bit confusing was the technical displays. I saw a display showing the two pieces of life jackets submerged in water. I have no idea what this display was about and when i asked one of the Seadoo guys, he thought it was to show how much difference in water is absorbed between the ecoprene and neoprene vests. Also, the seadoo steering display demonstration was confusing. Nobody was there to explain the display and I saw a few people play with it turning it left, right and center then shaking their head left, right and center walking away in confusion. However, after I asked one of the SeaDoo reps about it, it was explained in full detail what it was for. I have to say that I found the SeaDoo reps to really know their products!

    Anyways, the show was great! Here's a few pics;
