Being from Minnesota and the land of 10,000 lakes, for awhile, I did grow up on boats. I looked forward to every summer so I could go camping up north with my dad, and drive on his boat he had purchased. We would try to water ski (I still can’t get up on skies) and do some boating and swimming, and fishing. We would have a blast. It’d been awhile since I took the time to look at some boats.
Last weekend was the annual LA Boat Show. Think a plethora of boats, but it was also a fun place for the entire family. There were lots of different activities for children to do while at the LA Boat show:
This was a fun shot taken of me. They had a mechanical surfboard present, in which, you could get on and try it out. I was nervous about it, but I didn’t pretty well. This was me jumping off =)
Over at Try it Cove, they had 3 different activities that you could try it. They would switch it up every hour. When we first visited, remote control boats were present. These boats are handmade, and worth about a thousand dollars altogether. Were you aware that they have boat races around the country?
Paddle Boarding and Scuba Diving were also available to try out. We went back to try out a little bit of Paddle Boarding later on. They had a variety of sizes available. I still am not comfortable enough to stand on my own 😉
They also had a docking station available where you could get a feel of the boat controls, and see how well you are at handling a boat. The record was 22 seconds for docking a boat. I totally beat that 😉
And of course, now it’s time to showcase some of the GREAT boats showcased at the show.
For me, I was really admiring the Pontoon boats, and realized if I ever did invest in a boat that would be the direction I’d head. Just thinking an afternoon on the Ocean with friends and family.
Do you have a favorite boat? Did you attend the show? Although, at this time I am not investing in a boat, it was still a lot of fun to look around and dream for a bit.
