2012, Oct, Live-Aboard Boat Show

The "Live-Aboard" Boat Show was an idea that came from from Noodles (Nood Exonar)  which really appealed to me as I know we have never featured anything like it as a class of boats to show off exclusively. Now the thing is, when I was talking our Harbour Master - Ahab Quandry -- that we didn't want to show the mega motor yachts which are so common, not necessarily because we don't like them, but because they take up so much room and prims. No, this show was to be about the kinds of boats that have a bunk or a couch inside a  cabin were you could sleep and . . . conceivably, live aboard for a short period of time if not longer.

So that was the seed of the idea and I think it turned out pretty well. We weren't going to show exclusively sailboats but we would give preference to sailboats we thought.

After about a week, as I write this on October 9th, I think the show is turning out pretty well. It continues to grow but we are reaching our maximum of prims so any new boats that come in we will .. .  though reluctantly, need to return some of the ones that have been here a while.

It is always fun to see a mix of boats that are home-builds with the more polished commercial boats as is always the case with us at Tradewinds it is more a celebration of the art of boat making and seeing what is available in sl than it is in showing just the best
