PDX boat show
« on: January 08, 2018, 10:27:06 AM »
Opens Wed. the 10th at the Expo Center.
You can take the (Yellow) Max Train to right there and back for $5 all day pass.

Parking is a hassle and can involve a 20 minute bus ride.

Anybody plan to attend?

I think the Sportsman's Show has the major boat folks there as well. I usually attend the Sportsman Show.

I'll probably stop by on Friday or Saturday to check out the new Stabicraft 2750 center cab with a fishing buddy.

Those Kiwis are pretty creative.  These boats are insanely expensive, but I always enjoy looking at the level of thought/engineering that goes into them.  Fold-out seats that lay flush against the sides of the pilot house when not needed, double sliding doors that give you both a hard locking bulk head and a huge walk-through entry at the same time.  Even have a combo table top/livewell on the transom that looks like they copied Arima.



Now if I can just convince my buddy to drop $150k on one  :bigshock:

   Threeweight;  I see your still suffering, huh?   I know.........Twofootitis is a bitch.  Obviously, you've got it bad.  Unfortunately there's no known medical cure; at least not as far as we know.  They say "time" is the only true cure.  My bout with it didn't come to an end till later in life.  Be patient, my friend........you'll get better.......you'll see. 

Get well soon,  Yat  :facepalm:
Dear Arima:  Please "square-off" the Hunter transom. Next, stretch the Explorer by 9 and steal 2 or 3 from the cabin.  Please hurry, I'm getting old.

That boat does not have my name on it... it has my Intel engineer buddy's name on it  :biggrin:

My Hewes is a sweet machine for fishing the big rivers around here and staying nice and snug out of the rain, and still being able to go offshore when the opportunity arises.  My buddy needs to buy this boat so we have a dedicated 27' ocean boat, with that full walk-around for fishing live bait and jigging iron for Tuna! in August and September!
