Each Thursday we tell you about all the weekend's boat shows and nautical events so that if you can't get out on the water, at least you can still be around boats. There's nothing like a boat show in Fall, and this weekend's events include several international boat shows, as well as nautical events on each coast of the United States, specifically in Beantown and southern California.
Feel free to jump right to our calendar of boat shows at FirstBoat, or continue reading the Daily Boater to see where the boat shows are happening this weekend...
