The Norwalk Boat Show was a Great Success

The boat show was Great!  Perfect weather, a variety of new products and past favorite
attractions and a positive overall mood from attendees and exhibitors set the tone.  
This year the show was 20% larger, with more boats and products on display than in past years and attracted 14,839 visitors, a six percent increase over 2015 attendance!

Early reports indicate the show attracted serious buyers and resulted in a solid event for all exhibiting. 
It's that time again...
