It may be the middle of winter but I am already thinking spring. I know there are some people out there who enjoy the cold but I’ll take a warm summer day on the water over a day in the snow anytime. Are you in the same boat?
If so, join us at the New England Boat Show February 26 – March 6 at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center.
