Boat Show Today

Boat Show Today

Went down the boat show today. Not much in the way of new stuff as far as boats go and still a little while off before I look at an upgrade anyway.

Did pick up this cool fish bag. Been looking at them for ages as I want to keep it in the cabin when not in use rather than having a big esky in the way on the deck all the time.

Most of the ones in the US cost a fortune to ship over and the local ones have been pretty rubbish up until now. The quality looks good will see how it goes with a few mackies and wahoo when it warms up.

Picked up a new Jabsco deck wash to replace a dead unit on the boat and a Furuno GP1870F combo for a backup on the boat as well. Hopefully it should connect to the 585 easily to give me easy waypoint saving.


Show was really quiet today and also yesterday from what the guys there were saying. The tents with all the stands in it were so quiet that you could almost see from one end to the other

Cant remember exactly now.

They launched the product at the boat show so it was a sale price. I think they rrp at $299 for the big one and they were $250 at the boat show last year.
