“We’ve been displaying at the Seattle Boat Show for over 60 years and I have watched it grow into the largest celebration of boating in the Northwest. No other event in the region draws such a large and diverse group of boating enthusiasts.

It is the best opportunity to promote your business, meet customers and network with other marine professionals in the Northwest.”

Carl Sutter – Fisheries Supply Co.

“Thank you for all your efforts to promote and preserve boating and the industry.  I was thinking on my way home last night that it is great to have someone who is so committed to this cause.”
