As I was preparing another slide show from Clayton this morning, I found a theme of photos that I felt was a more interesting point of view on the the Clayton Show, and all boat shows. Pals! And why we really go to boat shows. Pals! To be honest, I have seen about 90% of the boats at the show before. And walking around looking at the same stuff, misses the entire point of why boat shows exist. Friendship. And actual human contact. Something that no website can replace. And if I may do so. Suggest a new marketing focus for the ACBS, the Antique & Classic Boat “Society”. The Society! Preserving the social part of classic boating.That simple. BTW, great simple strategies are that simple. Focus on your strength and truth.

The smiles say it all!
This years Clayton boat show was the most fun show I have been too there. Why? Boat rides and friendship. Period. Sure it was great to see and smell the varnish. But that lasts seconds and you can breeze through a show in about an hr. but hanging around with fellow Woody Boaters is what its about. And this years Clayton Boat Show delivered the goods BIGTIME.
