We had a fantastic four days at The Newport International Boat Show in beautiful Newport, Rhode Island! We were blessed with good weather, fantastic crowds and great friends!
Day One (Thursday) was sunny and warm on the docks and inside of the tents. Attendees were lined up outside of the gates by 9:30am, waiting to get in! We wrapped up the day with cocktails, a pig roast and good company at Newport Shipyard.
Day Two (Friday) brought another steady stream of visitors through the show. Boaterstube.com stopped by our booth to speak with us about our business, products and services. Be sure to keep an eye out for our 30 second interview with Erik! That evening the exhibitors enjoyed themselves over hor d'oeuvres and drinks. We met up with our friend Mike from Handcraft Mattress Company... be sure to contact him for your next boat mattress purchase, he's the best!
Day Three (Saturday) we arrived in Newport a little early to get on board a Sea Ray Sundancer that needs a new headliner. We met with the owners, took some photos and measurements, and will be in touch with them shortly with a project estimate! Then off to our booth we went. The show was packed - by far the busiest of the four days. We spoke with many friendly boaters, and answered many questions about marine grade products and custom manufacturing.
Day Four (Sunday) we were on board another boat by 8:30 am to measure for new blinds and look at another torn headliner. Then back over to the Newport Yachting Center for the final day of the boat show.
