The Newport International Boat Show kicks off today in Rhode Island, celebrating its 40th anniversary. If you go today (Thursday), and you see our publisher walking around wearing a FirstBoat polo shirt, say 'hello' and he will give you a free FirstBoat hat or t-Shirt. If you miss it, don't worry - you'll have another chance to win at the Boston Fall Boat Show in two weeks.
The west coast has several nautical festivities this weekend, including the Northern California Fall Boat Show in Oakland, the Central Oregon RV Dealers Association Fall RV and Boat Show and Sale (Redmond, Or), and the Boats Afloat Show in Seattle.

The PSP Southampton Boat Show is still going on, and today is Ladies Day at the show - all day Thursday.
If you were disappointed that Lake Erie Boat Week was canceled last week, don't despair. Yesterday was the first day of the North American In-Water Boat Show, just 10 miles up the road, at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio.
