Default New Hampshire Outdoor Expo and Great Northeast Boat Show

As I was typing this, I discovered that this weekend's NH Outdoor Expo is in Milford and next weekend's Great Northeast Boat Show is in Bedford (not, as I originally thought, at the same place).

Anyone going to either? My son is involved with the NH Jr. Bassmasters, and they're a presence at the Outdoor Expo, so I'll probably accompany him one of the days he's volunteering. Maybe they'll be giving out free ammo.

Not sure about next weekend's boat show, though.

Default possibly...

Milford is just a couple towns over from us here in Bedford and the Bedford venue is just a couple miles from my house. Assuming I don't hear the usual weekend statement, "We should...(fill in the blank with something I don't want to do)....", then I'll probably check them out.

If you like pontoon boats this was the show for you! Especially the 28ft Bennington with the 600 hp for $270K
And Wakeboats were all there too, which is what my buddy has and was talking to all of them.
Other than that very few other types of boats which was disappointing to me. Been thinking of a 17ft center console for the smaller lakes down south and then put on the big lake in the off season. Fays had an 18ft Welcraft which was very nice, but no others were there.

Makes sense. These two types of boats will be what mainly takes over in the upcoming years for lakes. Wakeboats and pontoons.

Zero experience with wakeboats, but I gotta think they suck a lot of fuel? Maybe a bit less popular this year?

It would totally be interesting to know the demographics for pontoon vs. jet vs. runabout, etc. Just going by who I've seen on wakeboats blasting music at sandbars and quiet coves—trust-fund bros and Guidos—I'm not sure money's an issue.

Ok, ok, so that's ultra-stereotypical and judgmental, I get it, but literally my experience these last eight years.

Don’t worry Think. Stereotypes and judgments exist for a reason. They’re accurate. Be confident in your experience. No need to tacitly apologize in advance when you’re among us normal people. lol

I should say inoculate, not apologize.

Like, 50+ year-old hairy-chested dudes wearing gold chains and smoking cigars among a stable of young(er) women. Historically, out-of-shape but this last decade could involve manscaped dudes trying their best to hold on to their bench press maxes from their Kappa Phi days.

I think?!

Seaplane Pilot, in the next line, he admitted to being "ultra-stereotypical and judgemental", so as an educator I am disappointed that he uses that particular term. Hopefully he's not stereotypical and judgemental dealing with his students.

Actually, stereotypes (and slurs) are central to one of the units in my rhetoric class—specifically, in terms of power structure and social hierarchy. It's one of the best.

Thanks for thinking of my students!

I wonder how much of that was a result of the boat shortage—were there as many dealers as normal and just not many boats, or were there fewer dealers/marinas than usual as well?

Can't comment on that, haven't really been before. Used to go to the Boston one regularly years ago but stopped about 7-8 yrs ago because it was mostly bigger boats. I liked it when it first moved to the new location because it had a bunch of sailboats.

And I'll say again with the stereos, definitely see and hear more of the pontoon boats loaded with 20 people cruising past my place blasting their music. Maybe it's just the location? .

Lol “educator” = teacher. I hope Think is disappointed in your disappointment, Up. So judgmental. Lol

Think didn’t “admit” to anything. An admission implies guilt of some sort. He’s nothing about which to feel guilty. He made a funny comment.
