Meeting Richard there. I'll see if I can get some swag for Peter, or maybe that free trip to Curacao that they're giving away...

Peter, I think your ticket will likely cost more than the $6.00 they are charging for entry!!! Jeff

All, we attended our first Florida Sportsman's Expo this weekend in Tampa, Florida and had the chance to see some of our builders (AA & Cape Man & many more), meet customers, both past and present, and really met a lot of people interested in building one of our boats!! The FS14 LS built by SeaSlug was a real hit at the show and I cannot tell you how many times I had to tell people that it was a wooden boat!! We feel the event was quite positive for us and the business and will likely look to attend a few more shows each year!! Again, for all of you that stopped by the booth, just wanted to say thank you for taking the time and we really enjoyed seeing/meeting all of you!! Next weekend is our Builder's Meet in Jensen Beach and I am really looking forward to just sitting around (with a beer) with the builders over the weekend!! Jeff
