Seminars from 10:30 am to 1:00 pm Open boats all day Refreshments & Snacks Event Details: 10:30 to 11:30 AM - How To Buy A Used Boat & Make Sure You Presented by Deborah Reynolds & Butch Florey Whenever we buy something used, there’s a higher level of risk than when we buy it new. We all have the fears and nightmares of getting someone else’s problems. This is particularly true when shopping for motorized vehicles: a car, motorcycle, ATV, or boat. In fact, it’s doubly true for boats, because there are so many systems, compartments, and accessories that are vitally important but impossible to see. A pre-owned boat can give you and your family many years of enjoyment and can be a very good investment if you know what to look for and what to avoid. This seminar covers all the points from the search to the survey to the closing of the transaction. Knowing what to look for, how the process should work and what you need to do can help you avoid costly and serious mistakes. 12:00 TO 1:00 PM Marine App’s for your Smartphone or iPad Presented by Ben Rifkin - Captain Ben Yacht Consultancy Bring your Smartphone or iPad and join this live, hands-on presentation on the latest apps to use for marine navigation and AIS (automatic identification system).
