Hamilton Boat Show 2014

Central Ontario Boat Show & Sale (Hamilton Boat Show), February 14-17 (Family Day Weekend) is held at the Careport Centre in Hamilton. This is the show's 4th year, and everything indicates that it's going to be even bigger and better than last year.
•    Leo Stakos and Ron James with FishTV are back – both with the pond and the fishing simulators for the seasoned fisherfolks.
•    Confederation Marine Modelers – everyone loves them toy boats what can I say? They are a great feature at the show. We bring a pool, fill it with water and kids spend the entire day learning how to operate remote controlled boats.

•    NEW THIS YEAR – Is our Canada's Power & Outdoor Zone — we are extending our wings to the recreational power products section to include PWCs, ATVs, snowmobiles and motorcycles. Because we know that boaters just aren't boaters and a lot of our dealers do more than just sell boats – such as:
o    DeWildt Honda – with Honda Power Products
o    Revs Full Throttle – BRP Power Products & Argo
o    Kelly's Cycle Centre – Yamaha Power Products
•    We're doing a give – away. One lucky attendee who fills in a ballot will win a Honda TRX420FM ATV courtesy of the show…
•    Lots of interesting new exhibitors…
Tim's Tribute:
•    COBBS has also put it's shoulder behind  Tim’s Tribute – a new charity providing assistance to families of innocent victims of homicide.  From the Tims Tube facebook page – exhibitors can purchase tickets and get $5.00 OFF – COBSS will donate that $5.00 to Tim's Tribute..

Lead by Executive Director Marie-France MacKinnon and executed by her team and their public affairs firm, BlueSky Strategy Group, the results were impressive.

Even in the event of an onboard power failure, a Ritchie Navigation SuperSport Helmsman SS-1002 magnetic compass still works.
