e "Around the Americas" circumnav a couple years ago.
We got to see the new Inland Sound 48, under construction at SEA Marine. A power cruiser equipped with fly-by-wire twin Volvo IPS drives, a Mastervolt distributed power system, a drop down "tailgate", and too many other features to list. Very cool.
We met some locals doing their own boat builds: a just launched 50 foot sailboat (from a bare hull) and a wooden trawler workboat conversion. Some very nice and inspiring work that generated a lot of good ideas.
With three to four hundred attendees, overall, a successful show considering it was the first one. Well worth the attendance fee. Mark your calendars for next year's symposium (same place, same weekend). It is sure to be even better.
