It’s that time of the year again. With a crisp fall breeze in the air, it’s time to load up our trailer and head east to meet some of you at the United States Sailboat Show in Annapolis, Maryland! We look forward to the boat show every year because it gives us a chance to meet our customers and show some of our favorite tools first hand.
What’s At the Boat Show
Stop by the Sailrite booth to see demos of the Ultrafeed Sewing Machines and all their great accessories. We’ll also be demonstrating some great tools including: the Sailrite EDGE Hotknife, the SnapRite System, the Pres-N-Snap tool, and the SnapRite Surface Mount Stud Die. We’ll also have a variety of DIY resources and supplies available for purchase, including our new Make Your Own Winter Boat Cover DVD.
If you can’t make it to the show, you don’t have to miss out on our great demos. Here’s a video that highlights the sewing capability and great features of the Ultrafeed Sewing Machines.
Why We Love the Boat Show
We have a great team of guys demonstrating the sewing machines and tools for you at the show. I spoke with a couple of them about what they enjoy most about going to the boat show. A big hit of the trip is the town and the seafood, but the thing they look forward to most is talking with customers.
“The guests at the boat show are fun to talk with. They are usually the serious boaters who love to learn about our products and services,” Eric explained. “They don’t mess around when it comes to DIY projects.”
Brian echoed Eric’s thoughts, “I look forward most to getting to talk with our customers who are always excited about their projects and boat show purchases,” he said.
“I also enjoy the show since it falls right at the very end of my sailing season. After seeing all the new boats and gear, the memories are fresh in my mind all winter as I anxiously await the next season—188 days after the end of the Annapolis show, not that I am counting!” Brian added.
