SailQuest. MarinaFest. Which one is the best?

The answer depends on which side of the country you live in - This weekend you can find SailQuest in Milford, Connecticut, and MarinaFest in Marina del Rey, California. There are a few shows outside of the country as well.

Here is this week's boating event round-up...
