Southeast US Boat Show – Jacksonville, FL

This was my first time to a boat show in Florida. It took place in Jacksonville, FL on the St. John’s River. Across the street is Everbank Field, home of the Jaguars – Jacksonville’s Football Team. Down the street is Maxwell House. Since I don’t have anything to compare it to, there’s really not much I can say in the way of good or bad. I will say, however, that we had thunderstorms and dark clouds most days. People came out for the entertainment at the show such as: bikini contest, kids rides, and to climb on boats. All in all, it was an experience. There wasn’t any program available so I can’t tell you who was there, but here’s some photographs from my walking around.

This was also my first out-of-state book signing.  Congratulations to Michelle Prosje who won our raffle drawing of a complete set of 11 interviews on downloadable mp3 ($157 value).

Hi Robin,

Mark Payton here….

I was at that Boat Show ending….Sorry that we missed one another.

BTW, I won’t do that show again. Folks come to that show for the entertainment. And, the entertainment is pretty good. Good food, also.

However, the entertainment attracted a crowd that wasn’t all that interested in buying boats or boat gear.
